as a note...that is NOT the paypal url...if that's the URL you're going to to try to get to paypal...then there's something fishy for sure..
mediaplex.com is an advertising site........you might want to take a trip through the malware forum with the afflicted computer to see if it's clean
Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.
That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty (and you may not be) then post a hijackthis log in THE MALWARE FORUM forum.
(Posting HiJack This logs in any other forum other than the malware forum is forbidden. If you post an HJT log in any other forum, it will be removed and it will take you longer to get help, so please make sure you only post HJT logs in the malware forum)
If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread..

Use ‘Search for files and folders’ and search your ‘c’ drive for ‘hosts’. Open it in notepad. ( You may need to allow all files and folders (including system files in folder view) – I didn’t I’m just adding this as it was in the info I found.
When open in notepad / wordpad, near the bottom there should be a list of IP addresses.The only one that really needs to be there is: 127.0.0.1 localhost. Delete the rest (mine had various Paypal pages listed). No problem accessing the page then. (Still don’t know how the problem is caused though).When saving the HOSTS file, it doesn't have an extension. Hope it works for anyone that has this problem.
