Default DNS Error

I need help. A few days ago when I tried to access the internet on my home
computer, I received the 'Page Cannot Be Displayed" page no matter what I
tried to do. I noticed that at the bottom of the page it would say something
like Opening from C:\Windows\System\.....dll/dnserror.htm. (I don't remember
the whole thing, thus the .....)

Can someone help me out on this. I've tried System Restore and CCleaner.
I've run my antivirus software. This started one day when I was actually
using the internet and it's been a problem ever since.

Thanks.

So How Did I Get Infected Anyway?
For quite a few people it's by installing programs like Messenger Plus,
whose ads for malware don't identify the malware as such and try to convince
you that you owe it to the author. See also:

Don't ever do a "default" install of anything. Always choose Custom and see
what else is being carried along. Don't install any extras you're not sure
of.

A dead link (also called a broken link or dangling link) is a link on the World Wide Web that points to a web page or server that is permanently unavailable. The most common result of a dead link is a 404 error, which indicates that the web server responded, but the specific page could not be found. The browser may also return a DNS error indicating that a web server could not be found at that domain name. A link might also be dead because of some form of blocking such as content filters or firewalls.
