I usually browse the internet with firefox, and a few days ago I ran across a problem. When using the Firefox I would periodically get messages from ESET NOD32 saying it was blocking a website. A new firefox window would open with multiple tabs all with URL's in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\... etc. I scanned my computer with the most updated versions of Malwarebytes antimalware, ESET Nod32, Windows Defender, and Spyboy search and Destory, but nothing was found. I figured something was wrong with firefox itself so I uninstalled it and began using IE more frequently and thought the problem had gone away. Today, when using IE the same thing started happening; ESET sent me similar messages about blocking adresses. However, this time instead of new windows opening with multiple tabs and random parts of C:, ESET seemed to redirect the web site to my homepage, Google. This problem does not only happen when I am browsing the web, but the browser needs to be open (for example I can be looking at windows media player with my homepage open and new windows of google will be opening simultaneously).
While typing this up took a few screenshots of the notifications and here they are:http://img33.imageshack.us/img33/9739/nod32v.png
Another IP adress I had noted down from when I was using Firefox was: 188.8.131.52:80
I went to the web before posting this but found very little and the posts I did find seemed not to have any results.
Any help is appreciated! This problem is becoming quite frustrating. Thanks in advance!
