I've read the other posts on Bloodhound Exploits. They describe what the message means but offer little in the way of assistance for making it go away.

This all started while browsing the web (www.surfthechannel.com) a while back. Symantec actually has a screenshot of the site I was infected by in their article describing the exploit. Symantec's site indicates "Turn off System Restore, run a LiveUpdate, then Run a Full Scan." That all came out clean, but I still have Auto-Protect popping up every 3 seconds indicating the threat is present.

I ran a full scan with Avast as well, and it also indicates everything is clean.

Any suggestions as to where I can go next?

Thanks

I'm not familiar with Bloodhound Exploits but I think these can help:

First of all, I checked the site with www.siteadvisor.com and found this site to be infected.

I also searched Google for Bloodhound and found this link.

*note: I haven't fully read the article so I cannot assure you if it's accurate or not. To be sure, BACK UP YOUR FILES BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO FIX THE PROBLEM. This is some sort of an SOP.


P.S.
Welcome to this friendly community. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the reply. I stopped visiting the site quite some time ago after I first got infected.

The article basicially says to empty all the IE temp files, clear the windows cache, and run a Windows update.

That seems to have slowed it down a bit. We'll see if it doesn't get better with time.

Thanks again.

So there's a slight difference then. Glad to hear that!

Please keep me updated. :thumbsup:

Hello Ataxia1,

I see that you have a HiJack This topic here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/228747/infected-but-avast-and-symantec-indicate-clean/ Because you have this log posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond. Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
