I just discovered a site in my browsing Explorer History called "www.storage.conduit.com" that my computer has been visiting every minute for the past two days. No idea what this is, definitely think it's malicious. I have XP. I physically disconnected my cable modem from this computer until I can figure out what to do about it. I can find no information about this issue anywhere!

MICOJOE

Just did a quick Google scan of the Internet, and found several articles reporting malware infection problems connected with the storage.conduit.com website, including some previous postings here at Bleeping Computer.

Therefore, please follow the advice from Driesiooo, and post the resultant log files in a new post in the "Virus, Trojan, Spyware and Malware Removal Logs" forum here at Bleeping Computer.

Thanks.

Thanks for the advice, I really appreciate it. I can't get past the Defogger download link in Step 6 - says "your current security settingsdo nto allow this type of file to be downloaded"...

Hi,
it seems that there is some mistake here.
the links you see in your history are from Conduit's domains (www.conduit.com)
i also have this kind of links, due to the fact that i have several of their toolbars installed on my computer
i have been using their toolbars for two years - and they are safe.
they are definitely not spyware \malware.
i hope that this info helps :thumbsup:
