    A quick fix is this:
    Control Panel> Internet Options> Security tab> Restricted sites> Sites> type in the following:
    Then click on Apply> OK.

    To follow: go through the steps in out Preliminary Virus and Malware Removal HERE

    When finished, attach the 3 logs for us to review for additional entries.

    Edit: Move your internet security level to Medium. I'm using Firefox and the page won't load.
