Default Question regarding DNS spoofing

Hi there, I've had a couple of issues lately and I am wondering whether there is a serious problem going on.

A few days ago, I clicked a link to a website and a Comodo warning appeared saying the site was malicious. A window from Comodo appeared asking if I wanted a geek buddy to help and I clicked no. I just logged off and quarantined the threat.

Everything seemed OK, then today my Internet connection dropped (light out on modem), and the router setup page appeared instead of Google. I was also logged into Facebook at the time. On the setup page, it was asking me to log in to reset the router, but it wasn't the normal router username showing.

For some reason I looked at the URL and noticed that the router address was wrong as follows:

I contacted my ISP about this and they suggested I get the computer looked at by a specialist and could offer no further advice, other than directing me to a page about DNS spoofing.

I ran a Comodo system scan this afternoon and it detected 3 threats, which I have cleaned. The geek buddy thing came up again, but I selected to deal with it myself. The threats in question are as in the attached file and have hopefully been quarantined.

Can someone advise me as to whether I am over this now, or whether I still need to run through the usual procedure and tests for malware removal. Everything appears to be running OK and nothing untoward happening.
