Hello all, new here. I recently was infected with Vista Smart Security, which is a rogue anti-spyware program. I removed it by deleting its registry keys and disabling it so that malwarebytes could run. Malwarebytes removed the infections and the program is gone, but everytime I use IE, random search engines open in another tab and have a query from a previous site. I also have been using peerblock to provide a safer browsing exerience. When I leave peerblock running when IE isn't
open, random ip's are blocked. They are connections such as "Amazon.com", "Tribal Fusion Inc." When I closed IE, next to my mouse is a loading cursor that disappears after about 3 sec. This is not normal and I had never experienced this before. Also, at the same time, my taskbar makes a quick shift like something was running. I have tried everything to find the infection. I have ran AVG, ESET, Superantispyware, Malwarebytes, Hijack This, and ComboFix. I have ran these in safe mode multiple times as well, but no luck. Any help is gladly appreciated. I am running Vista Home Premium.
