Hi @Silas_Britas

 

It sounds like your have been  hijacked mate.

 

Clear hosts  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/972034

 

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 https://www.lifewire.com/properly-scan-your-computer-for-viruses-and-other-malware-2624526

 

EDIT : I think you should follow these steps too ,

 

-clear DNS cache https://help.ea.com/en/help/pc/how-to-flush-dns-cache-for-windows/

 

-clear the browser cache: https://help.ea.com/en/help/faq/clearing-your-browsers-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).

If you want to know us or/and come up with ideas to improve the Origin platform or/and talk about anything and many more besides,you could also visit the NEW section Origin General Discussion http://answers.ea.com/t5/General-Discussion/bd-p/origin-general-discussion-en

Has this been solved ?

 

127.0.0.1 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.
