    If enter virustotal.com into the address bar and hit enter, the site won't load.

    But if I enter virustotal into Google and click on the first result, they load.

    What is with that? Rejecting direct visitors?

    Home Page:

    This could be DNS spoofing malware or a Virus

    Are you able to reach avast.com ? and other anti vir sites?


    I suggest you use https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/

    You are infected try and get malwarebytes and run a quick scan it picks up and removes a lot of things if the malwarebytes site is block it probably will be if the virus blocks virus total try and download it from another place like cnet.

    Yeah, I can reach avast

    But I can't reach virustotal which is really weird to me.

    malwarebytes.org Checked
    Kaspersky.com checked
    eset.com checked

    virustotal.com Unable to load

    Running Malwarebytes now. Will report back later.

    Wtf, you are not infected.
    It seems to be just a web browser bug...
    You use Chrome ?

    Try with another web browser.

    Ok, it's strange...

    Because with Chrome I have regulary the "same" problem : I try to go to a website via URL address bar and it won't load (loading, loading, loading... but nothing), but if I go to Google and search the website and click link result, no problems.
    Then, if I try again to go to the website via URL address bar, it loads without problems.

    Like a Chrome freeze...

    Anywhere in the world building WP sites.
    Please check your hosts file, if nothing suspicious, it's likely your network packet is intercepted by some local malware.

    The virustotal url is funky. Firefox with a firefox virustotal plug-in is your best bet.
