    Put teamviewer on this, and I can have a look if you want. If you install it send the ID and pw it gives you to me in a PM

    K9 Web protection may have been the cause of this alert. It must write to the hosts file or something?? And Kaspersky probably thought the hosts file was getting altered / modified. That's what this trojan does (by the looks of it). So, I uninstalled K9,, Wolf rebooted and so far so good. The alert hasnt popped up again

    Yip problem seems to have been solved now. No virus alerts and webpages working fine now.

    Huge thanks to Speedy for taking the time to look at it and finally solve it.
