That is what I do. However, I discovered something else that may or may
not shed some light but I don't understand it. Again keeping in mind
that my browser has no trouble finding URLs, I tried 'nslookup' from a
command prompt and it can find nothing. The error is no response from
server. This happens with all the name servers I tried. It makes no
sense the the browser can find IPs but 'nslookup' cannot.

I did reboot after removing the malware but I can't reboot at the moment.
