I am not able to get to the Netflx websit this monirng. Every link takes me to a page by Sedo Domain Parking. Is anyone else having this issue? I am directed here even if I use my browsing history.

I'd do a scan of your system. Try a spyware/hijackware scan.

I am running a scan now, thanks. Iwent to the Sedo website and found this. This is the exact format of the url in my temporary files when I try to access Netflix.com.

You probably have some kind of spyware that modified your hosts file. I'm assuming you have Windows.

Go to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC and check the date to see if it was modified. Open it in Notepad and you should only see this entry:

127.0.0.1 localhost

Delete anything else that's there and then close your browser and try again to go to Netflix.
