Today I've somehow gotten something that when I'm webbrowsing it will occasionally take me to a blank page ("cannot be displayed") with the url cleantraffic1.com/warning/?id=70367 &url=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX with the X's being wherever I was going from (example, from here it would read cleantraffic1.com/warning/?id=70367 &url=http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/index.php?act=post&do=new_post&f=56).

I've run Spyware Doctor, MalwareBytes and SUPERAntiSpyware, but it's still coming up. I use Norton Symantec but it's not finding anything. When the blank page comes up the security box pops up saying 'A recent attempt to attack your computer was blocked'. The security history on it lists

An intrusion attempt by cleantraffic1.com was blocked
Risk Name: HTP Fake Scan Webpage
Risk Level: High
Attacking Computer: cleantraffic1.com (
Traffic Description TCP, www-http

I've googled cleantraffic1 but don't see anything. Can anyone else help? Many thanks in advance.

Hi - Did you ever find out how to get rid of the cleantraffic1.com? I have it also and can't find anything about it on the web except for your question. All Norton's does is block it, it won't get rid of it and I can't find it anywhere on my computer. This is a very annoying issue. Thank you.
