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.
Thank you in advance for your help.
