    Hello,

    I've got a MacBook Pro from 2007 and for a week or so I've experienced something very interesting for a Mac... In the evenings, after 8-9 pm when I access some sites (let's say ebay) and click on an item to read the description, it comes up in Chinese! Actually it's the same page every time I try to open the description of any item I pick on ebay. This happened with other sites as well... The redirection is to a site called "net.cn". Do you know what it could be and how I can fix this annoying thing on my MacBook Pro? Not to forget to mention that the operation system I've got is Mac OS X 10.4.11.

    Many thanks

    Try clearing your browser's cache for starters and see if that helps

    I'd try doing an erase and install of the operating system if that doesn't work.

    Take a backup of your documents first though.

    Check your DNS server data in Network which is inside of Sys Prefs... you could try using Google's 8.8.8.8

    Thank you, guys, but I'm really new to the Mac world and I don't know how to do that (I know how to do it on a Windows laptop) but not on a Mac...:eek:
