    xp security center redirect
    Having a problem, no matter what browser i use (safari,firefox,opera all latest versions osx 10.5.5) if i try to go to digg.com I get redirected to the dreaded
    xpsecuritycenter. Tried downloading avast but found nothing. Found Hosts files looks like this.
    GNU nano 2.0.1 File: /private/etc/hosts

    ##
    # Host Database
    #
    # localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
    # when the system is booting. Do not change this entry.
    ##
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    255.255.255.255 broadcasthost
    ::1 localhost
    fe80::1%lo0 localhost
