I'm running ie6 on xp media center. About a week or so ago, I had a run-in with the "VirusDoctor" popup. I knew enough not to click on the "x" to close, and used task mgr. Around the 4th time it popped up, I disconnected from the internet and tried using keystrokes to close. The little "scare" script ran, but I just stopped and exited. After that I ran McAfee, Spybot, Ad-Aware, Malware Bytes, SUPERAntiSpyware, Kaspersky on-line scanner, and Windows Defender, all scans show nothing. I figured that maybe because I wasn't connected when the script ran and I subsequently used CCLeaner, that it had deleted from the temp folders.
Fast forward to the current issue:
In the last few days, I noticed that icons in my favorites drop-down menu (bookmarks) have been corrupted at random. I don't mean they've changed to the default ie icon--they're all the ie icon and I want it that way. Their appearance has changed, looks like they are a little smaller with poor resolution. As a test, I deleted some of the bookmarks that had the higher-res icon, and then went to the web sites and added the pages back to the favorites, and the icons appear corrupted. I don't think it has to do with the creation dates of the bookmarks however, because some recent ones are normal as well as some older ones. Again, this is only in the drop down menu of the favorites. When I click on the favorites button on the toolbar and the window splits and shows the bookmarks, the icons are fine.
