The other night, I suddenly had Antivirus System Pro on my PC. I believe I have managed to remove most elements of that, but there are still two issues that remain:
1) Occasionally, IE will pop-up a new window. The URL starts by going to "directdr.com", plus a bunch of characters I can't catch and then it re-directs to some random site. I can't figure out what's causing that behavior.
Edit: Here's an example of the URL it tries to go to:
2) I also notice that if I do a Google Search and click on a result it will also do a redirect, with the initial URL being: r9237232.cn. Doing a search in my registry, I see that as the data in the following key:
I don't know whether I should simply delete the key, or whether doing so would have other deleterious effects on my system.
I'm run MBAM, Advanced System Care 3, IObit 360, and they have not removed this problem. I'd appreciate any advice.
I am attaching the current Hijack This log...
