I have tried visiting http://getridofit.com from my mac using Chrome and Safari. Both times it loads this page: enter image description here

When I visit from any other computer I get the normal website. Is this a DNS problem with my mac? Did I get some sort of malware? How do I fix this?

Many Thanks.

It looks like something is likely hijacking the DNS. Please list what DNS servers appear in System Preferences → Network → Wi-Fi (or Ethernet, whichever your primary interface is) → Advanced → DNS. Then list the contents of the /etc/hosts file. –  robmathers Dec 2 '12 at 21:25
    
This could be caused by browser extensions too. Try disabling all extensions. –  Gerry Dec 2 '12 at 21:34
    
robmathers 192.168.1.1 is the DNS Server. I dont see the /etc/hosts/ @Gerry this is happening across multiple browsers. I did try disabling every Chrome extension and that did not help. –  Carson Dec 2 '12 at 21:42
    
192.168.1.1 is your router. Can you login to that and look up the DNS server there? Or run dig www.apple.com in Terminal and take note of the SERVER line (close to the end of the output)? –  patrix Dec 3 '12 at 6:06
    
@patrix I logged into the router and it says the DNS is: 68.105.28.12 68.105.29.12 When i run the command in terminal it says ;; SERVER: 192.168.1.1#53(192.168.1.1) –  Carson Dec 4 '12 at 4:26
