Preferred Solution: To Help Protect Your Security, Internet Explorer has blocked this website....

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

As of this morning, when going to many websites, including Microsoft, I get the annoying "To help protect your security, Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for more options..." yellow bar in Internet Explorer 8.

I haven't done anything special since yesterday, nor installed anything! If I click and accept the download, it downloads automatically to a temp folder but also a Microsoft FrontPage window opens at the same time, with gibberish.

When running IE8 without the Add-ons, I don't have the message. I've narrowed it down to the Adobe Flash Player. I had version 10.1.102.64 so I uninstalled it and installed version 10.2.152.14 Beta 2, the latest. No change!

HERE's an example.

Any of you having this problem today?
By the way, I have emptied IE8's cache.

Tried a System Restore to yesterday.

Ran malware scans.

Checked IE8 settings (they were untouched).

Disabled SpywareBlaster.

I'm puzzled!

Thank you
EDIT:

For an unknown reason, everything is back to normal!!!!!!! I haven't done ANYTHING!

One thing I hadn't thought of. I'm using Google Public DNS. Could they have been experiencing any trouble?

I'm not marking the thread as solved yet, just in case...
 

Answer:Solved: To help protect your security, Internet Explorer blocked this site from downl

Well, I'm marking this one solved. Everything seems back to normal.

I fail to see how disabling Flash was fixing it.

Most of the sites I was visiting didn't even have files to download! So, the warning seemed irrelevant.

Would have liked to have a "logical" explanation but I'll settle on blaming it on Google Public DNS...

EDIT:

Apparently, others have been experiencing a similar problem today:

Just about EVERY website I visit (including this one) IE8 gives me a popup stating that Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. I even allowed it once--the file was in Notepad stating:

Hi,

I'm new here, having been recommended by someone who has succesfully removed viruses in the past, with your help.

My 12 year old son was surprised by the invitation to run Vista Internet Security 2011, and said Yes (groan). Since then, I have tried to run my Avast, both in and out of safe mode, but it has not detected any files, despite the fact that the VIS 2011 security window keeps coming up on my screen. I have tried to download the Microsoft security tools, but my access to the internet has been denied, even in safe mode. I've also tried to identify the virus files in Task Manager, but they are either hidden, or well disguised.

I am now completely unable to access IE, as every time I try, it tells me that the programme is absent. I accessed my email three days ago (after the computer had been infected), but I have not tried since, as I am afraid I will cause problems there if I keep trying.

I've read the guidelines for what to do before submission, but I can't action most of them because they require downloading, which I'm not able to do!

I have an Acer computer, with up to date Avast antivirus (free version). I also have a Mac book which is about three years old, and I can access the internet, and my web based email, through that.

I'm hoping you can help me turn the IE back on on my PC, and get rid of the VIS 2011.

I know my way around a computer a bit, but I am by no means expert.

I'm about to go away for the weekend, but I... Read more

I'm trying to fix a classmates Windows 7 laptop that she desperately needs for school. I'm having a hard time figuring out what is going on with her internet explorer. Every time I try and load a page ( Google, Yahoo etc..) I get a error that there is a problem with the websites security certificate. Now, I can click "continue, not recommended" and usually get through but some sites, like the college home page, just come up as web page not available. I've tried turning off the firewall but that has not worked. Any suggestions? 

Answer:Internet Explorer problem with website security certificate

The first thing I usually do is check the system date and time.
 
After that check to see if she's setup to use a proxy server.  I've seen this cause the same problem as well.

Hi! I keep getting an Internet Explorer Security warning box that says: "A website wants to open web content using this program on your computer." Beneath that message it reads: This program will open outside of protected mode. Protected mode helps protect your computer. If you do not trust this website, please do not open this program. Then, below that message it says Name: Adobe Flash Player; Publisher: Adobe Systems Incorporated. You can click "Allow" or "Don't Allow." I've been clicking "Don't Allow" because I think it may be a virus. This message pops up whenever I try to navigate to a different website - they are trusted sites such as Google or MSN. I'm just not sure how to get rid of it. I have run SuperAntiSpyware which found some threats then removed them, but I keep getting this message. I also ran Malwarebytes but that found nothing.

My computer is running really slow, and I keep getting this message. I followed the directions in the preparation guide and am posting and attaching my logs that Bleeping Computer recommended. Thanks for any help you can give me!

I then tried on Edge browser, and it seems like it able to connect to 360 Total Security site without any issues. By the way, this also happened on my trial Kaspersky Internet Security installed on my laptop as well. So I don't know what's going on because there is literary no malicious, phishing, or fraudulent alert from Kaspersky or Google Chrome. Is this some kind of bug?

Hello members of the bleepingcomputer community. I have an issue starting yesterday where upon starting my computer the rogue software "Internet security" with motto designed to protect would pop up and terminate almost all of my programs, prompting me to buy their rogue software.
 
I started the computer in safe mode and in my other admin. account, running Malwarebytes full scan and quick scans. However none of them removed the virus as upon restart it came up again. I then used SuperAntiSpyware and did a full scan. It removed one Trojan file, and upon restart the darn "Internet Security" virus still pops up and kills half of my processes as it did before, except this time around it crashes around 2 minutes in (just completely disappears) and I am able to fully use my computer. However when I check the task manager I can see that all of my start up processes have been killed by it. This obviously means that the virus is not fully removed. I have performed repeated Rkill and MBAM quickscans after this, on my other admin acct, the infected acct. after the virus crashes, and on safe mode. MBAM has stopped detecting anything.
 
I was wondering how to remove this darn virus once and for all? Thanks alot for any help~!!

As such, all necessary downloads of log and reports scanning software and resulting text reports were transmitted to and from infected computer to corresponding computer via flash drive.
The virus on crudeoil?s computer is believed to be INTERNET SECURITY designed to protect. A window popped up containing the above name security program suspiciously soon after a previous window (believed to be a fake ADOBE FLASH PLAYER update ) popped up of which I may have inadvertently activated in passing over it with my mouse.

Hi,

I am writing because I would like some advice on what's the best and most efficient way to keep my PC protected against viruses and spyware on a regular basis. I used to have Windows Live One Care that came with Windows Vista and I used that for a year, and now it's replaced with something else and before I sign up for this something else for another year, I thought I would check if there is a better way to do this. What I liked about it is that it worked on its own, did regular updates without any interference on my part, except to ask for action when it found something weird. But, I do know there are sites out there where I can download free open-source anti-virus software.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

I'm working on a Windows 7 64-bit computer used by my adult daughter and two teenage grandchildren. When the computer boots, it automatically starts "Internet Security - Designed to Protect" ... which seems to be malware. Task Manager is locked out, so the program or process can't be stopped. I am not able to stop the malware program from doing the apparent scan.

Since I could not stop the malware from running after a normal boot, I ran all of the Read Me First items in Safe Mode with Networking.

Ccleaner removed 4,457MB

MalwareBytes found several items, which were removed, and required a restart. After restart, the malware automatically ran on boot.
TDSSKiller found no threats

HitmanPro found several threats

MGLogs ran with no problem

The malware still runs automatically after a normal boot but not in Safe Mode. Advice will be most appreciated. The logs are attached.
 

Answer:Internet Security - Designed to Protect Running on Startup

Double-click RogueKiller.exe to run. (Vista/7 right-click and select Run as Administrator)
When it opens, press the Scan button

I have 2 problems which I believe to be unrelated but no virus scan or malware scans have detected any problems. The first started a while ago and my windows update will not connect to download updates. I believe something is blocking it. Also if I go to the microsoft website to download an update manually when I click to download I get a page cannot load error. So I think something is stopping me from updating my version of windows (Vista SP1).

The next issue just started recently and at first I suspected it was just one webpage and it was their issue. Whenever I'd go to the site it'd redirect to an ad, different each time. It would block all access to the site because it'd just redirect to an ad site. Then as randomly as it started, it will occasionally let me onto the site and then again start redirecting. I thought it was the site because it does this in every browser and also on my Mac in safari & firefox. If I try opening with NoScript running it just opens a blank page. Anyway I now believe it's not that site that's the problem because now another unrelated site is doing the same thing.

I tried doing everything listed in the "before you post" thread but RootRepeal will not run. It just freezes at the "Initializing" screen. I did a search and found one place where someone having that problem was told to rename it something else but when I did that I got "Could not load driver (0xc0000035)!".

Hi, I have been having some disturbing problems with my computer recently. After running a Spy Sweeper virus scan, I discovered a Trojan/Zlob virus which I thought I took care of by removing. Now, I am having troubles with my Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers, as they will randomly decide to not load anything at all or only after hitting refresh at least 20 times. Typing in a URL takes ages and 3 times so farnone of my browsers were working and when i closed the browser window my computer immediately bluescreened and crashed. When I start Windows back up and report the error, I get a report saying it is caused by an unknown driver. I looked into my Add/Remove list and found Internet Explorer Security plugin 2006 and Internet Security Addon, whihc I thought were suspicious. I googled them and found that they were indeed malware caused by the Trojan/Zlob and I read that removing is in the Add/Remove list would not solve the problem. I dont know what else there may be on my computer, but I performed each step as reccomended in the prep guide for posting a hijackThis log file and I am still having these problems.

Welcome to the BleepingComputer forum. We are currently studying your log and will have instructions for you shortly. Thank you for your patience.HijackThis is an analysis AND a repair tool. When you fix something in HijackThis, you are deleting a bad entry in the Windows Registry. In case of a mistake being made, there is a reversal for line entry deletions. HijackThis creates a new file which is a backup log of changes and you can reverse the line entry deletion. BUT...HijackThis needs a safe folder to keep these critical backup logs and a temp folder is definitely not safe as you might run Disk Cleanup and delete them. Please place HJT into ITS OWN PERMANANT FOLDER. You can do this by going to My Computer (Windows key+e). Double click on C: If the folder is hidden, click on show the contents of this folder. Right-click on a blank space in the right column and select New > Folder Name it HJT (C:\HJT\HijackThis.exe Move HijackThis.exe into this folder.

Wonder if you guys could help me?

I have had the following problem for around 2 weeks now and no amount of Microsoft Support has fixed it.

Anyway here goes...

I am running a Windows XP Pro computer on a network, Windows Firewall is enabled, and Kaspersky Anti Virus.

When I open up internet explorer I just get a blank screen.

If I use the ping command i get a response from Google no problem.
I have also installed Firefox and this works with no problem.
Also HTTPS:// websites seem to work ok within IE but normal HTTP websites just give a blank screen.

My Outlook seems to work but it cannot download images that are web based.

Also other programs that require IE don?t work either...

Any ideas?

Issue: I must have picked up a virus that is preventing MS Internet Explorer from running on my Dell Demension 4600i. When I double click on the icon, nothing happens. I am writing you from my laptop which is running off a wireless connection to a Cisco Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router. The Dell Desktop PC is hardwired into the Router and all connections appear to be good so it is not a hardware problem.

I am not getting any error messages with this issue.

I subscribe to McAfee virus and firewall software since 2004 and never had a problem before. McAfee says there are no infected files (I ran the full scan).

I downloaded and ran MalwareBytes Antimalware 1.44 in safe mode (full scan) and it found 3 infected objects. I let MalwareBytes delete those. Internet Explorer still did not run. I then ran MalwareBytes in regular windows mode (quick scan) and it found six infected items. I let MalwareBytes delete those. Still, Internet Explorer is not working.

I tried to run AVG but the virus (I think) is blocking that from running because it the .exe file wont run.

I am having a problem with accessing the internet through internet explorer. Today, I installed FireFox and it is running great.

In internet explorer, when I choose "tools" and "internet options" it says I am restricted. I am not quite sure what program is blocking me from access.

I have went through internet options in My Computer and reset all the defaults to no avail.

I appreciate any help you guys can provide for me.

Thanks!

I am trying to help someone with a trojan that keeps them from running Malwarebytes (even in safe mode)to remove it. When they log in, a screen pops up with the title XP Home Security has blocked a program from accessing the internet. These also pop up... Xp Home Security Firewall Alert. Internet Explorer is infected with trojan-bnk.win32.keylogger.gen

Please let me know if I am posting this incorrectly (this is new to me) or if you need more information.

Thank you in advance

Answer:XP Home Security has blocked a program from accessing the internet

Hello dennisk63, XP Home Security should be able to be removed by following the instructions in the Remove XP Anti-Spyware 2011, Vista Security 2011, and Win 7 Internet Security 2011 (Uninstall Guide).That guide can be found here.Please let us know if you have any problems with the guide or the removal.

I have Norton Systemworks 2003 and Norton Internet Security 2004 (with the firewall set to "on" ) and running Windows XP.A virus scan detected a number of infected files of which 7 could not be deleted, these are all Adware. As my Norton updates are automatic and the firewall always on I dont understand why these adware files have found their way on to my pc. One of them is characterised by a window appearing on shutdown saying "wupdater.exe is not responding" Norton gives instuctions on how to delete these and this involves changing the registry.Is there any way of safely and easily deleting these using some kind of Adware blocking software?

Answer:Norton Internet Security 2004 - Adware not blocked

Norton products will not block ad/spyware pests. For this you need Adaware AND Spybot-S&D - yes BOTH - they complement each other. They'll remove most scumware & both have a backup feature so if anything should go wrong you can always restore the deletions. Also consider installing another program, SpywareBlaster, to prevent scum from entering your PC in the first place. To download - Adaware - click here - Spybot-S&D - click here - SpywareBlaster -click here . All the programs are freeware. Remember to check for UPDATES regularly & BEFORE scanning for the first time. Also visit this site & have a good read - click here - about dealing with unwanted spyware and parasites.

Hello, recently ran into a weird error, as described in the title. Every time a user wants to extract some archive, he right clicks on it and a popup appears saying "internet security settings blocked one or more files from being opened" Can
click Continue or Cancel iirc. The file is not not blocked, but just gets a warning. It does not happen for other users working with the same files and settings. Tried resetting internet explorer security settings, tried setting Enable on Launching applications
and unsafe files and Launching programs and files in an IFRAME in security settings on all the zones, still get the same. Any other options? Could it be UAC or something else? Thanks

My Inspiron 15 Notebook,  Windows 7 , 64 bit : I finally was able to convert to one C: drive.  Had to upload it's old operating recovery disk.  So ended up with out-of-date older version of internet explorer which can not update to newer version
because the Microsoft.com update site is being blocked.    Spent days on this just can't get out of catch 22 of being romped to update and downloading site preventing/blocking updates to the browser and the windows update.  Any Ideas?

So, recently I was being redirected to bogus antivirus sites whenever I would do a google search, but now that problem does not seem to be the case. However, bleepingcomputer.com seems to be blocked by some sort of virus, i am only accessing it through a proxy server right now. Internet Explorer was also causing problems, opening randomly to sites like netlist.com or running advertisement audio in the background.
I have since uninstalled Internet Explorer as well as Norton AntiVirus, which was being blocked from running. MalwareBytes was able to find a few trojans and remove them, but continued scans come up with a file called Rootkit.TDSS which i try to remove but seems to reappear. Could this be the cause of this problem?

Answer:BleepingComputer blocked, Internet Explorer vulnerable

Answer:cannot connect to internet explorer have sururity or blocked

Use the edit feature on the above post and remove your email address unless you enjoy getting slammed.Look in device manager, if your NIC shows a warning then tell device manager to uninstall it, download the latest drivers for it for your machine from the machine manufacturer's website and install that. Then restart the machine to fully detect and install it with the new driver.If it does not show a problem then it might be an infection so run Malwarebytes (if needed download on another machine and transfer the installer with a flash drive), and run it. Remove all it finds and try again.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

This morning on July 26th, I has an intrusion attempt blocked by Norton Internet Security Firewall. At the time, I had Interet Explorer open on two websites: aircanada.com and wrestlecrap.com. Both are legitimate websites. Wrestlecrap.com I've had no problems with in the past. Aircanada.com I had an issue with a few months back where the website would load and then suddenly, an error screen would come up saying that it could not connect to the site (not the blue screen). I let it go for a few weeks and then came back to the site and there was no problem. This morning, I had two tabs open on IE. Wrestlecrap.com had loaded and aircanada.com was in the process of loading when the firewall went off and then the error screen for IE came up on the tab I had opened for aircanada.com. Then the popups for Norton came up, so I pulled them up and found out that two intrusion attempts had been blocked.I immediately closed IE and began a full system scan with Norton. It found 25 tracking cookies which I deleted once the scan completed. I then ran scans with: TDSSKiller (no threats found) MBAM Anti-Malware on quick scan (no threats found) Super Anti-Spyware (53 tracking cookies found, all deleted).So far, nothing else has surfaced. IE and my PC still works. I'm wondering if there was anything with the intrusion attempts. I have yet to try those two sites again and don't plan on it anytime soon.So is there anything else I need to do and is there any cause for concern? The alerts according t... Read more

Alright I caught the google redirect virus or malware 2 weeks ago. So I ran malwarebytes thought it had got it all apparently it didn't because then i got the rogue fake anti virus program internet security 2010. so ran malwarebytes again got rid of the virus computer was running pretty good except for websites like youtube I couldn't acesss at all they said
Restricted Site!
This web site is restricted based on your security preferences.

Your system is infected. Please activate your antivirus software. and I still can't access the sites. than I noticed one of my svchost.exe files was taking up an unusal amount of memory and it seem to be downloading something i could tell by looking at my modem. So i tried to kill the process because i knew it was probably another trojan and it shutdown my computer down. Than I ended up with another rogue fake anti virus xp antispyware 2010 and so I was gonna run malwarebytes, avg, and superantispyware but, this new trojan is kinda nasty it won't let me run malwarebytes or avg neither will it let me install them even if I change the file name. I was kinda avoiding this because I wanted to try and fix it myself but, I couldn't so could someone please help me out. I'm gonna run superantispyware see how far that gets me until someone can help. A big thank you in advance for whoever helps me out.

Hello All,I am having an issue when I start to use the internet, especially if I use any sort of search engine.

Hi,

I am a windows xp user and believe I have a rootkit problem. First thing i noticed was that abc and spybot could not update (couldn't connect to server). My searches with firefox appear normal however if i click on a result i get redirected to another search. I can copy/paste the url of the search result and get what i want. Every security related site is blocked. Including this one. I have to use another computer to download anti-spy stuff. I get a "Failed to connect" Only happens to security sites.

Sorry I can't post logs until i figure out how to unblock urls.

I was able to download "rootkit reavealer"

it found tdssserv.sys timestamped 8/9/08, which is about when i noticed the problem.

I ran HijackThis, it is pretty full of entries (again I can't post a log yet)

I had to download these files on another computer. I also installed combofix and accidently ran it when i transfered it from a cd. It runs for a second and then reports "combofix had detected the presence of rootkit activity and needs to reboot the machine. It does then boots normally and combofix does nothing else. I did install "windows recovery console"

Here are a couple of quick facts about Internet Explorer and malware as it hits this 1 billion blocks milestone:

?NSS Labs have recognized the Internet Explorer 8 SmartScreen? Filter as a leader in protection against Socially Engineered Malware in their August 2009 and March 2010 reports which compared Internet Explorer 8 to Chrome, Firefox and others.
?Our malware block rates continue to improve because we continue to improve the SmartScreen service back-end. For example, in August 2009 we had blocked about 70 million attempts to download malware or about 18 million blocks per month. At the time, according to Net Applications, about 15% of the internet population used Internet Explorer 8. In the last two months, we?ve blocked 100 million attempts to download malware. Last month, according to Net Applications, nearly 26% of the internet population uses Internet Explorer 8. There are 1.7 times more users on Internet Explorer 8 than August 2009 but we?re blocking 5 times more malware month on month.

Hello all!
 
My girlfriend decided to try and download something and apparently it wasn't from quite the right place I've run Malwarebytes and ADWCleaner, but I'm still getting a Malicious Website Blocked warning from Malwarebytes for an Outbound threat called choiceforme.website. I've run a number of full scans, but nothing seems to be able to clean it. It's coming from a chrome.exe deep in the users/.../appdata directories.
 
Thanks for all your help.

Hello.

I am new here; I was googling around on a friend's computer to try to figure out why my desktop's internet is dead. In the process of doing so, I encountered this site, and believe it is a good place to seek aid.

Last week, I wound up opening a box of trojans by accident; one of many things which hit my computer were the Security Essentials 2010 malware.

I removed it successfully, had functional internet for a few days, but during thel ast of those days, while running one extra full-system scan via avast! just to be sure, it reported a "helpers32" file in my c:\windows\SysWOW64\ folder to be a virus.

Vindictively, and possible naively, I deleted it.

Upon reboot, my computer was no longer able to get online. via cmd -> ping google.com, I can successfully ping outside my box, but website / steam / skype / etc will not connect. HJT reports that this file is required to get online, despite multiple google searches leading me to believe it was in fact put there by a virus.

This line leads me to believe my previous statement:

"O10 - Broken Internet access because of LSP provider 'c:\windows\system32\helpers32.dll' missing"

Despite it saying that the file belongs in system32, the one I removed was removed from windows\SysWOW64. There may have been another one in system32 removed by my antivirus stuff, but I don't have a record of this.

My HJT log follows; Any help would be appreciated!!

Hello, I'm having a huge problem with my computer. A virus has blocked Internet Explorer along with AntiVirus programs that other forums have recommended. Basically, when I open up IE it immediately says that IE is not responding and needs to shut down. The same goes for Kaspersky. Also, when I go to Google to look up solutions, I click on a link but it takes me to a different page and I have to retry several times to get where I want. I downloaded HighjackThis but it would not start, even in safe mode.

One program that did work was Avira AntiVir. I scanned the computer and it came up with two malwares. It quarantined them but when I tried to open IE, nothing changed. I tried deleting the files as well, but again, IE was shut down immediately.

Please help! (p.s. I'm running on Vista)

Answer:A virus has blocked Internet Explorer, Kaspersky, HijackThis, and other AntiVirus programs

Try this scan. You can copy it over from another computer if you need to.Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.Please download Dr.Web CureIt and save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.alternate download linkNote: The file will be randomly named (i.e. 5mkuvc4z.exe).Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:Double-click on the randomly named file to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current versionRead the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now?

Answer:internet explorer website problem

Possibly an add-on. APB or an antivirus site checker or something else. Try disabling a few and try the site again after closing and reopening IE.
You should be able to whittle it down to the bad add-on.

Hi all, hoping you can helpI'm experiencing some problems with a website I made when viewing it with internet explorer (it's happened on multiple versions).Everything displays fine at first, but then when I scroll down and back up again, some of the text dissapears randomly from the navigation bar at the side. The text which dissapears changes depending on how far you scroll down etc. Once you run the mouse over the missing text, it displays again fine. It's extremely strange.This problem doesn't happen in firefox, so I'm a little confused as to what it could be. The website is for a course project, so I'm a little worried handing it in with this problem with Internet Explorer, as this is the most common browser on campus.Any help with this would be appreciated if anyone has heard of this before. Unfortunately it isn't online at the moment to demonstrate. ThanksChris

Answer:Internet Explorer Won't open 1 website.

Your log is actually clean. Here's a couple tools to try, let me know if they work in resolving your problem.

Please download Ad-aware SE and install it if you don't have it already. Make sure it's the newest version and check for any updates before running it. Go to this site to get the plug-in for fixing VX2 variants. To run this tool, go into Ad-aware->Add-ons and select VX2 Cleaner. Then click Run Tool and OK to start it. If it's clean, it will say Status System Clean. Otherwise, you will have to click on the Clean button to remove the VX2 infection. Also make sure to customize the settings in Ad-aware for better scan results. Run the scan and fix everything that it finds.

Download WinsockFix and unzip it. Then double-click on it to run it.

Hello,

Recently my internet explorer 7 started launching itself and go to unknown websites : its not a normal launch since its only visible at the task manager procces page and the websites didnt show in the history file.
As I have experiance using my PC I begun doing everything I know.
After Having my computer scanned with many anti malware/spyware proggrams including - Malwarebytes,RogueRemover,Kaspersky,Avg and few more. I failed to find what was causing this and why there isnt any history records of this.
Doing some more research I found a program to view the contents of the explorers history file (IEHV) what I found is that the explorer goes to this site :

tibia-inject.com/ping.php?id=68085&conf=uwp33&infid=1375893814&infname=lol (DONT CLICK IT!!!!!!!!!)

So far I have failed to remove this but I suppose its some sort of keylogger for the game tibia. I have zemana Antilogger but it doesnt catch this 1.
All of my attempts to remove it or finding information on the web on how to remove it have not been succesfull all I found are known rogue program sites so I obviously avoided them in order to not get anything even worse.

If anyone have encountered a similar problem or can refer me to a topic on how to remove this horribly nasty infection and willing to share it here please do.

Thanks

This may be 2 separate issues, or they may be related, I am not certain.

OS: MS Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 - SP2
Browser: Internet Explorer 8

1st issue - Norton guard repeatedly states about once every minute or two that a connection to [random URL] was blocked, and that the 'actor process' was "c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe". I have run a norton system scan and *supposedly* it's clean from infection. I have had issues with norton in the past where it "finds" things and supposedly fixes them, but really hasn't, so I downloaded and ran a scan with Avira, which found more malicious things and removed them (i happened to have both running when I ran Hijack this - I do know to only keep one on there in the future). I have also downloaded and ran Malware Bytes.

2nd Issue - Internet Explorer will not open at all. There is no error message. When I open IE with taskmanager open on the processes tab, I can see iexplore.exe start, and then immediately end. I have tried downloading and installing IE8, but this did not resolve the issue. Firefox.exe works just fine.

Below is the hijack this log. I understand that it appears the procedure has changed to using DDS, however, I am assisting a friend with her computer and am unable to obtain a DDS log at this time as the computer is about 45 minutes away, so I would greatly appreciate it if you could work off the Hijackthis.log for now. Thanks!

Answer:Norton constantly states a connection has been blocked,Internet Explorer doesn't open

Update:

First off, I tried to just edit this message but couldn't find an edit button :(, so i'm posting the update as a reply. I visited my friend again today and did some work on the machine as detailed below, and generated the dds and gmer logs (below/attached). Thanks for your assistance!

[edit] A response by Friday evening would be greatly appreciated if possible, as I plan to be visiting again this weekend. Thanks! Also, if you feel the IE issue is not malware related please let me know asap so I may repost in the IE support forum. Thanks again! [/edit]

Changes made:
Installed Service Pack 3 for Windows XP
removed Avira (Norton AV remains)
Ran Hijackthis.log through an analyzer tool (hijackthis.de/en) and removed the known-malicious lines.

Effects:
IE still has the same issue. Process starts for a very brief period (seen in task manager), then ends. There is no error message.
Norton has ceased with the intermittent notifications that it blocked attempted outgoing traffic.

New issue discovered (I believe this was occuring before but forgot to mention it):
Windows Update launches upon login, but immediately ends and the icon is removed from the systray. Note that it is not merely hiding, the icon is actually gone/process is ended. The icon while i briefly see it is yellow indicating pending updates need to be downloaded/installed.
No browsers are able to access windowsupdate.microsoft.com

Help! I'm working on XP and have Norton Internet Security 2006 installed. I'm able to connect to the Internet without any problems, with one exception. I can't seem to access msnbc.com. It times out everytime. When I turn Norton off, I'm suddenly able to connect to the site. When I turn it back on, same problem occurs. I don't have Parental Control turned on so I didn't block the site. It used to work just fine so I'm guessing I accidentally screwed something up. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Answer:Unable To Connect To Website - Norton Internet Security

Hello jrube9 and welcome to Bleeping Computer!Try opening Internet Explorer, then going to Tools->Internet Options. Then click on the Security tab at the top and click on Restricted Sites. Then, (underneath) click on Sites and check the list to see if msnbc.com is on the list, and if it is, click remove.This may not solve your problem, but it might help. Charles
