    Yes raghav, My apologies for the delay. Try the following:

    Please download HostsXpert 4.4
    • Extract (unzip) HostsXpert.zip to a permanent folder on your hard drive such as C:\HostsXpert
    • Double-click HostsXpert.exe to run the program.
    • Click "Make Writable? "
    • Click "Restore MS Hosts File".
    • Click OK at the confirmation box.
    • Click "Make ReadOnly?".
    • Click the X to exit the program.
    -- Note: If you were using a custom Hosts file you will need to replace any of those entries yourself.

    Ok raghav,
    I'd like you to try this.
    Please download Pocket Killbox from here

    Double click to run the tool
    Copy and Paste the following into the Full Path of File to Delete box
    Code:
    C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
    Select Delete on Reboot and click the Delete button

    Click on Exit and Reboot the computer.
    ================================================

    Download MVPS Hosts from here and follow the instruction given here
    =================================================
    Let me know if there is any improvement in performance.

    raghav,
    Can you go to the Add/Remove Programs section of the Control Panel and remove any instance of Spyhunter..
    ==============================================================================
    We also need to reset Internet Explorer back to the default settings to remove the last few bad add ons.

    Download and run this Microsoft Fixit for Me tool to reset Internet Explorer. If you use a specific Homepage you will need to set that again afterwards.

    Hi raghav,
    Do you still require assistance with this?
    An update would be appreciated.

    Marked Pending.
