The URL is not valid and can not be loaded

Last night, my computer acted strangely. I couldn't get to any internet sites using my firefox browser. All I got was a blank screen with a pop up screen that said " The URL is not valid and can not be loaded". I tried to use Internet explorer but same thing happen.

I tried to disable the firefox toolbar extensions to see if the extension was causing the issue, but the problem still persist ie. I still got the invalid URL issue. So what I did was to use the System Restore utility of Windows and voila the problem was fixed. I guess, it must have been a spyware or something that had caused this problem, but no matter what it is, Windows System Restore utility is a great utility to put back your computer back to it's previous working condition.
