Earlier this month, while using Internet Explorer, I started seeing antivirus warning pop ups. Microsoft Security Essentials soon warned me that is had found FakeSkypro and Alureon.CT on my machine. I ran the scan and the software claimed to remove the trojans.

Things were quiet for about two weeks. Today, Microsoft Security Essentials displayed a warning of unsafe actions on my computer. I can't tell exactly what the actions were. I clicked on a link to view additional information about the warning. The additional information was not helpful (a blank file listing "client"), and I now cannot figure out how to re-display the warning I saw earlier, so I can't give it word for word.
  • I ran another Microsoft Security Essentials complete scan. It found nothing.
  • I downloaded and ran Malwarebytes. The program didn't find anything.
  • I downloaded HijackThis and have a log, if it helps.
  • I am running Windows Vista.
I am not experiencing any redirects, slowing or unusual behavior on my machine. The Microsoft warning just has me a bit concerned. I want to make sure, as much as possible anyway, that the trojans are disabled and removed.

Thank you in advance for your help.
