    Default Virus?

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I went to the article Blue (game) and I think I might have gotten a virus that only allows my computer to visit bulbagarden.net and no other websites.

    What do you mean? How is that even possible?

    I don't know. When I visited the article, my security notified me of a virus that it was trying to block and now the internet will only allow me to go on bulbagarden.net

    So, you can't type in http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/www.google.com or anything? It just relocates you to the main Bulbagarden page?

    When using Mozilla Firefox, it would say "Problem loading page. Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections."

    When using Internet Explorer, it would say "Internet Explorer could not display the webpage"

    Have you tried restarting your computer or cleaned out the cache?

    A proxy?

    In Firefox, go
    Tools > Options > Advanced > Settings
    Then turn off the proxy, or set it to automatically detect. Either should fix your problem. If it's already on those....sounds like just a weird error in your Firefox. Try uninstalling and reinstalling if that's the case.

    Thank you so much, Mr. Archaic! It worked for Firefox but do you know how I could fix the problem on Internet Explorer??

    Don't know the exact place that would be, but it'll be the same kind of thing in the options somewhere.

    What was the proxy entered in there? Seems very strange something could get there without your knowledge.

    In IE, it's probably under Internet Options > Connection or some variant thereof.

    Although the question is - why would you ever need a site other than Bulbagarden.net? :D

    As Trom said: in the world of bugs and viruses, this might be the best one ever.

    Contrary to popular belief, there is more to the internet than Bulbagarden.

    *gasp* What? There's more?

    What version of Internet Explorer do you have, and what operating system? If you're on XP or Vista and have IE 5, 6, or 7, upgrade to IE8. If you're on Windows 7, upgrade to IE9 beta. That might correct the issue.

    I believe I have 7. I'll try upgrading it and see if that helps.

    Thanks everybody for the help, even though I don't understand why I'd need any other website ^_^;

    Well, TVTropes has a big massive warning on its Pokemon page: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Ptitlei015gc004kw4?from=Main.Pokemon

    Warning: The Pokemon wikipedia website, Bulbapedia, seems to have a Vundo type trojan circulating within it. Any links leading to Bulbapedia should be avoided until the problem is solved.
    I've visited the site a few times within the last two days, nothing happened to me though.
