Hi,

MBAM detected some problems tonight. A MBAM staff member sent me a link, http://74.125.47.132/search?q=cache:bVEgsu...=clnk&gl=us , that seems to explain the issue but I am in a bit over my head here. Seems that this infection may have serious ramifications & I want to be sure I am clean. I scan daily with Avast, MBAM & AdAware, run Spywareblaster, a hard firewall in addition to Windows. I just picked this infection up tonight. I have included my entire post to the MBAM forum below, including the MBAM log. Any help would be appreciated. BTW...all scans are now coming up clean. Thanks.

Alan

"Updated & scanned today on 2 separate machines & picked up the same infections on both machines. The machines are not networked in the sense that they each operate separately, but they do share a router & modem. I had many specific ad cookies disabled on one machine & decided to allow them back today...again, this was only on one machine. Seems as though this has something to do with the scan results as all issues appear to be ad related. Anyway, just an FYI. Still, I don't understand why enabling cookies, & not even 3rd party cookies, would cause MBAM to consider them a registry problem. Perhaps someone could shed some light on this. See report below:"

Thanks, Alan
