Hey everyone! There's a problem where I can't seem to go to this website (bleepingcomputer.com). I've had some problems with searching on Google. When I try to search something, it redirects to another site about some sale. I can't open Avira Anitvir. Another strange thing is that when i check task manager, it has process iexplore.exe running even though Internet Explorer isn't open. And if I leave it open, somtimes all of the sudden you hear an ad while internet explorer is still off. Last time it happened it said an ad about a show called Grey's Anatomy (LOL
) without internet explorer on and without showing any video of the ad. Just the sound. Anywho, I believe my PC is infected with some kind of virus/spyware/malware but I don't know what it can be. It started after I removed the malware "Malware Defense". I used the instructions found in this website to remove it (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-malware-defense
). I put the download links it told me to download on a USB flash drive and I moved them to my infected PC (which I should state if it helps, was that Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware was already installed on my computer). After that my PC was fine for awhile until the problems stated above happened. Can anyone tell me what my PC is possibly infected with and how to fix it. My operating system is Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 3. I'm posting this forum on a different computer since mines won't let me. I don't use my PC now that it's infected because I don't know if it'll try to steal info like while your checking your e-mails, filling out applications, etc. I also don't know what posts and logs I need to put in this topic. If you need more information you can tell me what to post and I will post it as soon as I can. You can ask me any question no matter how dumb it sounds as long as it'll help fix this problem.
