Hi @Silas_Britas


It sounds like your have been  hijacked mate.


Clear hosts


Restart your machine and check if your issue persists.


NOTE now you need to run a complete virus scan on your entire computer. If you happen to have another non-persistent (not always running) antimalware tool installed, like SUPERAntiSpyware or Malwarebytes, run that too when this is done.


More details about how to properly scan your computer for malware


EDIT : I think you should follow these steps too ,


-clear DNS cache


-clear the browser cache:


My Opinion is no more important or right than yours.I'm a gamer like you, trying to help you (i'm not an EA employee).

Has this been solved ? is the loopback address , it is worthwhile resetting the hosts file as mentioned by yahel_1  can also try changing DNS servers to say googles per this link as a test if this is persisting.
