    I have a new Imac and brought it home. Its connected to my network fine, but anytime I try to open up chrome or firefox it brings up internet network service. I can't navigate away from it. When I try to reset my home page it doesn't matter, it will still try to bring this up? Is this some kind of virus somehow on my mac? Never seen anything like it. I'm using comcast for my internet service provider currently. Thanks for any and all help.

    OBJECTIVE reality
    When I got my iMac I had to call the ISP to get them to activate something on their end.

    There has never been a virus in the wild that affects Mac OS X since it was released 10 years ago. The handful of trojans that exist can be easily avoided with some education and common sense and care in what software you install:
    Read the section "Why am I being redirected to other sites?" in the link above.

    Is there anything in the proxy settings in Firefox network settings?
