Hi all,

I can't access paypal.com. Any help greatly appreciated. I've Googled this problem and have tried alot of things....but to no avail. I've checked my hosts file and reverted back to the default per MS instruction on their site. I temporarily disabled Nortons firewall and anti-virus, I've cleared the DNS cache, all cookies, temp internet files, etc and still can't access the site. this is the only site I can't access. I have a delapitated desktop PC, cranked it up and was able to get to the site, so it's obv. not my wireless router. I did have a virus on the machine back in June, maybe something happened when that was going on? I actually hadn't tried accessing paypal since before that time, but now I need to asap. I'm totally confused here. Any idea's? Thanks!

Running Win Vista SP2
IE8
Nortons 360
S&D Tea Timer

Screenshot of current hosts file: My old hosts file only had the following for some reason: 127.0.0.1 localhost And the hosts file shown in screenshot that states "backup" has a ton of stuff in it.
