Thank you all. I checked my machine and it is not the problem. I need to educate myself on DNS cache issue or else I will hire a pro. I do not use Filezilla but use FrontPage, which is getting obsolete and I must change to something else.
Well, the malware injected into the .htaccess file was interesting that it included only Google, Ask, and Excite and not Bing and Yahoo and that is what was very baffling. Due to this not only did Godaddy argue that it is not their problem even I argued that it was a Google problem (I never even visit Ask and Excite). Apparently the spam domain is based in Russia and while I initially wrote that it was redirecting to a blank page (which is weird) it was doing so only in Firefox because in Explorer it was trying to download one of those "your computer is infected so let us plant our malware" pages.
