Hi,

I don't know if I have a problem here or not, but here's what happens:

Every time I start up IE I get an alert from Trend Micro (Internet Security 2007) telling me I'm trying to connect to 'Intop.info/get_update2'. The alert is tagged as Spyware.

I've run spyware and virus checks and it shows up nothing. Any ideas what this is? A couple of times today I have found myself redirected but nothing else obviously wrong

All I can do at the moment is block access to Intop.info via trend mirco.

Can anyone help please?

What OS (Win 2K, XPsp1, XPsp2, Vista) are you using?

What specific scans/steps have you taken so far?

Hi,

Thanks for responding. In answer to your questions, I'm running XP SP2 and to date all I've done is run Trend Micro's spyware and virus scan which shows up nothing.

My PC knowledge is pretty limited so I haven't tried anything else so far. Presumably something is affecting IE as this warning message only happens when I start up IE.

Grateful for any helpor ideas!

Jimbo

One last question.....

I assume I should use the manage quarantine option and delete all these files?

Yes, you can delete them.

Then if there are no more problems or signs of infection, you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
Vista Users can refer to these links: Create a New Restore Point and Disk Cleanup.
