There are several viruses that will stop you from getting to
anti virus software sites.

Forgot to add 127.0.0.1 is a IP local to your machine. It's a loopback
test.

Check that you are configuring DNS with your ISP correctly.

Hope this is useful to you. Let us know.

Search for a file called HOSTS. In most cases it shouldn't have any
entries. If you see page after page of entries all relating to
anti virus sites pointed at 127.0.0.1 delete them. I think the virus
I ran across was DosAgoBot. It was a bear to get rid of.
