I clicked on a link i HuffPost and was redirected to a page that wanted me to let some program "fix" my "screwed up" drive, etc. It wouldn't let me quit the page, etc. I then tried to type in words in the url of the browser, but they would not finish or give me the list of suggestions, for example: MacTech would not fill in http://fo rums.MacTech.c om/ ubbthreads, etc. [without the spaces ]
So the solution for me was to run DNSChanger Removal Tool.app which I still have but don't remember where I got it.
You probably installed it long before you came to that page. It didn't do anything for a while and just chose the HuffPost click to fire off. The only way it got there was through some installer, just going to a page wouldn't install it.
Another computer on one of the same networks can't resolve the greenfrogmarket.com domain. My desktop Mac also will not resolve the url. The only thing I can think of is that something is wrong on our webhost's end. Last Sunday GoDaddy had our site offline because of an automatic renewal that did not go through properly. That issue was resolved immediately and the site was back online within an hour. Later this week when I began uploading new files to the site via ftp is when this problem started occurring with some computers not being able to resolve the url. All other urls are fine and there are no other issues with the computers that would cause this problem.
The only thing hard for me to understand is why only some computers are having this trouble and everyone else can see the site, as far as I know.
Does this seem as though it must be a GoDaddy issue? I am going to call their tech support again to see what they can do. When on the phone with them the other day they said they can see the site just fine, of course. Trouble is, their online ftp app will not connect to the site from my computer. Their online file manager does not work properly with Safari or Firefox. At the moment I have no way to do website updates. Calling GoDaddy now...

Don't know. I've given a lot of suggestions, and asked questions about your router/modem setup, but you haven't replied to them, or mentioned if you have tried what I suggested.
What exactly is your hardware set up. Router, modem type, any hubs/switches. The first thing I would try is connecting straight to the modem from one computer, but that also depends on if the modem is also the router.
Tried the DNS numbers - no change (using the Open DNS numbers now -220.127.116.11 , 18.104.22.168), sudo crontab - came up fine, no strange plugins in the Internet Plugins folder.
At work now where the network is wireless with a so-called satellite isp. They beam the signal to a receiver on our roof from across town. The receiver has an ethernet cable running to the wireless router. Not sure what gear the receiver has in it. Not sure if I can plug in directly from the receiver ethernet cable and get a proper signal. I can go upstairs to the wireless router and plug in directly there. we do have decent tech support from our local isp if needed.
On this same network I just checked our domain from a co-workers computer with the same dead end result. Safari says "contacting"... and it goes nowhere until timing out. It seems as though each network where I have recently uploaded files to the domain gets bolloxed.
Working late today and go plug in at the router if that will help.
That's what I thought too. But, of course, everything is fine on there end, so there is no problem. I spent an hour on the phone with their tech support and they did try a series of tests including megaproxy.com and the site shows up fine there.
What is weird is that when I tested the site at work yesterday before uploading files, it was resolving just fine. After uploading a few files I could not connect with browser or ftp. This problem only seems to be with networks I have used to upload files to the domain. I have looked at my html files on my computer and dl'd from the site - there is nothing in the html that should not be there.
Does greenfrogmarket.com load ok for you? I'm betting it does.
