I started getting this a day or so ago. I have not visited any sites that I don't normally go to, nor have I installed any new apps. I am, however, using Opera, not Firefox. I've just set it to block *.videocop.com/* Hopefully that works out. None of my scans have picked this up yet.

i am having this issue in both firefox and internet explorer, at the same time i started having issues with google opening links in a new window everytime and having new windows/tab open with search.gugle.com in the address bar that then resolve to google.com.
i have scanned for viruses, spyware, and also formatted my laptop to no avail. the issue also occurs on another computer and 2 ipods in my house.

The DNS entries were:
This is not a virus.
The involved router is a Netgear WPN824v3. The default password had not been changed, so this wasn't particularly difficult for someone to do.
