Then I say again, "did you check your hosts file?" If the hosts file has an extension on it (such as hosts.o1d) then it is the wrong file.
That is the IP address that came up when I pinged google.com
These are symptoms you would get if your hosts file has been modified and that is not good if you did not do it manually. And in researching that particular IP, it seems to be associated with users infected after visiting bit-torrent or P2P sites that support illegal filesharing of copyrighted materials, such as songs, videos, or other published documents.

To restore your hosts file, download and run HostsXpert. This is a compressed file you can save to your desktop, or someplace else convenient.
Then I would urge you to run a full scan for malware. If you don't have MBAM start there. Download and install Malwarebytes's Anti-Malware (MBAM) and scan as follows:
Click on Restore MS Hosts File to restore your Hosts file to its default condition,
Click on Make ReadOnly to prevent any more unauthorized changes,
Exit the program then see if you can access Google
Check for updates before scanning, Repeat for all computers in the "Trusted Zone" of your network (your side of the Internet "gateway" - typically the cable or DSL modem).
Select Perform quick scan > Scan,
When complete, click OK, then Show Results,
Ensure all is selected, and click Remove Selected,
When complete, save the log in Notepad to a convenient place for future reference.
