What ISP do you have, several have begun to replace site they can't find w/ ads. Try opendns and see if you still have issues.

I don't believe that they have started their targetted advertising yet, if you have doubts take a look at some alternate DNS servers, Google recently introduced theirs, Level 3 has always been really good, I don't suggest OpenDNS.

Google:
8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

Level 3:
4.2.2.1
4.2.2.2
4.2.2.3
4.2.2.4
4.2.2.5
4.2.2.6

Read somewhere [not sure how much truth in it] but Level 3 is slowing closing off access to those DNS servers to the public. :(

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
