The other day I posted this question http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7519360/urls-are-inconsistently-being-redirected-using-isapi-urlrewrite-3-0
I was doing some local development testing on my laptop and I was getting some general weirdness (As indicated in the hyperlinked question). Now the problem seems bigger. I've gone so far as to turn off IIS locally. Still when I type 'localhost' I get sent to www.sc-pa.com. However, while IIS was still running, if I typed 'localhost/default.asp' that did work. I've tried pinging localhost, which seems fine. I've tried tracert. The only thing I know that I did locally that could be the problem is added dns suffixes to my connection. Other than that I can't understand how this is happening.
The logs for my local IIS don't even get hit when it is running and I type 'localhost'.
my host file C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
The mod date of the file is 6/10/2009 and I would never have modified it. It appears normal to me.

Update View from nslookup localhost
I've isolated the issue down to IE8. Chrome and Firefox do resolve localhost to my local machine. I've tried resetting all settings in IE8, that did not help. I even connected to another wireless network and tried.
