What do you see here: http://www.katkam.ca/

MSIE: I see CyberBrowse.com homepage

Netscape: I see KatKam.com home page - which up until today, I saw also with MSIE

And with only MSIE, I get alot of the following (but not Netscape when I try same URL) Bad Gateway The following error occurred:

[code=DNS_HOST_NOT_FOUND] The host name was not found during the DNS lookup. Contact your system administrator if the problem is not found by retrying the URL.

But if I go back minutes later, I can get page with MSIE. Seems to be weird problem with MSIE that I cannot diagnose.

Update: no problems with MSIE if I omit the www portion in the URL. For example, http://katkam.ca/ works okay.

Sounds to me like a possible browser hijack or spyware that may have been installed in your computer.

I'd recommend running (and downloading) if you haven't already:

1) Spybot Search and Destroy -


(site currently under high activity due to an update I believe)

- OR -

2) AdAware


3) HijackThis -


In terms of #3, I'd run the scan, and if you can't figure out some of the nasties to delete, feel free to post your log results in this thread.

Also, you may find the following discussion forum helpful:


Hope this helps.
Buh Bye!
