This is quite odd. You are saying that when you do:
you get your local website? Not your remote website? And you get your local 
website even though you have deleted Apache and mySQL on your local machine? 
That's a bit hard to believe.

What happens if you do a tracert to Does it trace correctly? 
If so, then it would appear that the content on that site is not what you 

What is your local IP address(es)?

I just visited that IP address, and it has a single entry from 23th Sept 
about needing to do an upgrade - is that what's supposed to be there? Is 
that what you're seeing?
