i'm using window XP Home Edition- SP2- 180 GB harddrive and 512 MB of memory. Lately, i was unable to use Internet Explorer to surf the net. when ever i type in any addresses ..the page always display this site http://www.yahoo.akadns.net/
which said Sorry, the page you requested was not found. whenever i try to surf other sites it automatically goes to this site for some reason. I had used Bitdefender to scan for virus and it showed no virus had found..
so how do i solve this problem?

My System

Let's go through the standards first, and see what happens.

On-line Scanners
Scan your pc with 2 of these free online scanners:
Panda ActiveScan
RAV AntiVirus
Housecall. Be sure to put a check the box beside AutoClean.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Download / Install / Update / and Run:
Adaware SE check for any updates before running it.
Get the plug-in for fixing VX2 variants. You can download it at this SITE
To run this tool, install to the hard drive, then open Ad-aware->Add-ons and select VX2 Cleaner. Then click Run Tool and OK to start it. If it's clean, it will say Status System Clean. Otherwise, you will have to click on the Clean button to remove the VX2 infection.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Download and install Spybot S&D . Run Spybot and click on the 'Search for Updates' button. Install any updates that are available. Next click on the 'Check for Problems' button. Let it run the scan. If it finds something, check all those in RED and hit the Fix Selected Problems button. Exit Spybot. If you keep getting the DSO Exploit entries, even after you updated Windows and fixed them, then download the Spybot DSO Exploit Fix and install it over the current Spybot installation.

locate your hosts file. Not hosts.sam, the one with no file extension.
Win98/me it is c:\windows\hosts
XP
C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Single left click to select, hold down shift key and right click on it , choose open with, choose notepad, but make sure always use is NOT checked and choose okay.
If there is a bunch of urls and IP addresses listed, copy and paste here so we can tell you which to delete.
It sounds like malware
