Oops! Firefox could not find xxxxxx Error on recently visited sites

I just got a new laptop, downloaded Firefox and having the Oops! Firefox could not find error. It happens with any site. Hitting refresh loads the page just fine. I've disabled IV6, I've made sure Firefox is on the Windows 7 Firewall exception list (deleted and re-added it), and Ive disabled DNS prefetching. Google Chrome has the same problem on my computer but IE 8 does not.

Do a malware check with a few malware scan programs.
You need to use all programs because each detects different malware.
Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of the database before doing a scan.

Thanks for the quick reply, I have done all the scans mentioned and they all found 0 infections besides the standard cookies and what not. The issue still exists though.
