    IP Locator Question...

    Greetings. I am new to this website but have an important question. Please help.

    Usually, on the AntiOnline IP locator page, my IP address is a follows:

    66.91.214.22 and is located in Herndon, Virgina (my internet company's home site)

    HOWEVER, as of yesterday, the locator now reads:

    66.91.214.22 in AUSTRALIA!!! Am I currently the victim of a virus, trojan and/or being hacked!

    Your suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    The locator is highly inaccurate. (At least it has been with all my tests.) Don't worry, you don't have a virus or anything.

    Thanks...

    for your response.

    It is strange, however, that my other computer gets an accurate response from the locator. Is there a technical reason as to why I am getting an odd response for *this* particular terminal?

    Strangely enough...

    When I change the IP address, for example, to:

    66.91.214.21 the locator initially reads "virginia." however, when I refresh my browser, it then reads "Australia." (as of last night, anyway).

    Incidentally, during the past week, my (Norton) virus alert reported:

    bloodhound.exploit6 (unable to remove)
    bloodhound.exploit23 (removed)
    trojan.download (unable to remove)
    trojan.download (removed)

    Also, at shutdown: I now have an unknown program terminating. Perhaps coincidence? Or a connection there?

    Well you can download ole “Sam Spade” and check yourself when you’re in the mood. And it also has a trace feature to show you the hops.
