This is a problem that started from yesterday night. I was trying to go to facebook from chrome when it prompted me to download a file named 'download' instead of opening the page. So when I tried to search for the problem in google, found out that during any attempt to visit google.com, a download prompt with a file 'search' comes up. But I can visit gmail or youtube or BG. This happened with firefox & IE also. & this problem goes away after I restart the pc, but again reappears after a few minutes of browsing. I tried removing IDM, removed all background data from chrome, even I stopped KIS protection once but in vein. Now this problem is really pissing me off. I can goto fb or search google from my mobile via wifi which shares the same connection via a router. Can anyone help me ragarding this situation?

Just to add, I just clicked on the submit new thread button & a download prompt naming 'ping' came up. & the browser showed that-- 'this page was trying to download multiple files, should I allow or deny' prompt.
