Hi,

Late last week I started getting the following message when trying to open _any_ website in _any_ browser:
______________
Excessive Sessions Warning
Error
Your 2700HG-E Gateway has intercepted your web page request to provide you with this important message. The following devices on your network are using a large number of simultaneous Internet sessions:

SteamPower

The most likely cause of this issue is a ~blaster~ type virus which has infected the device. It is strongly recommended that the devices above be scanned for potential viruses.

Note that a large number of sessions may occasionally be the result of application software or gaming software installed on the device. If you believe this is the case, click the ~Do not show me excessive session warnings in the future~ to disable this feature.

To access the requested Web page that was intercepted, please close all browser windows and then restart your Web browser software.

If you continue to see this page after closing all open Web browser windows, restart your computer.

Do not show me excessive session warnings in the future
______________

'SteamPower' is the name of my computer (however, I can't remember ever naming the computer this, it is old though, so I don't know)

I have since disabled the message but still get it whenever I turn the notification back on.

I've spoken with Telus tech support. The problem is not a WOW type game (there are none installed) nor file sharing (we don't). Norton, Kapersky, and Trend Micro scans have only shown adware, and it's been removed. Trendmicro scan left the following message about system vulnerabilities:
______________
Trend Micro:

MS08-009

Transfering more information about this vulnerability...
An error occurred while trying to retrieve more information about this vulnerability. There is currently no more information available.
More information about this vulnerability and its elimination.

Malware exploiting this vulnerability: unknown
More information about this vulnerability and its elimination.

MS08-074

Transfering more information about this vulnerability...
An error occurred while trying to retrieve more information about this vulnerability. There is currently no more information available.
______________

I've since run Hijack this, with the thought that perhaps my wireless network's been hacked and my computer's part of a botnet, the log is copied below and attached to this message:

______________

I've run out of ideas and expertise (not that hard, in my case). So, if anyone on this forum could suggest what to do, that would be great. Two last things:

1) I've search the web using Google for the text of the original error message (the one from the router). From what I've seen, it may not be a problem at all and might just be the router being overzealous. However, why it would suddenly do this after months of working fine, I don't know.

2) Shortly before this problem cropped up, my wife downloaded and installed EndNote (a reference management software), and played a game on the MSN website. Neither of these seem dangerous to me, but I thought I'd mention it.

Thanks to all who have taken the time to read this. If you can help, great. If not, thanks for your time.

Cheers,
Andrew

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.


Thanks and again sorry for the delay.
