mshta.exe trying to access the internet
Posted 28 November 2010 - 07:49 AM
This is my first post and I am very excited and thankful for the help being offered here.
Recently I visited a site and received some popups, specifically one for microsoft security essentials which I have never seen before. I then began receiving alerts from ZoneAlarm that mshta.exe is trying to access the internet, and I Deny it every time. However, I never got this notification before. It happens quite frequently now. I have scanned with the following programs:
Malwarebyes and Norman found a few things and I removed them. I rebooted and continued to scan until nothing was left. Many times it found restore point to remove. However, I still receive the mshta.exe notifications from ZoneAlarm and also see many mshta processed running in my task manager under processes. I believe something is still on my computer and trying to send information. Can anyone help?

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.
Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.
If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get.
