I have the EXACT same virus/trojan/adware thing as you. It brings up websites in IE which I don't even use, turns off my sound aswell and brings up the phishing filter thing. iexplorer is alway running in the background even if I end process it just comes up again. I've tried Avast, Malware Bytes and NOD32, they remove suspected trojans and stuff but the problem remains. I most likely got this off normal ads, probably google ads.
Though I can't help and am also looking for a solution, I started experiencing the same thing yesterday also with XP and IE. Upon startup the phising filter turn on/off window pops up and I don't know why. it has the added annoyance of somehow disabling my sound card when it does that so I have no sound. If I restore to a previous point my (which I've done a dozen painstaking times so far) sound comes back though when I use IE (I am a regular Firefox user but sometimes use IE) I lose my sound card again. Also, another pop-up appears that asks if I want to make IE my default browser, which it isn't now. These are all new symptoms that started with this pop-up.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm now tearing my hair out.
There was also sound playing on a loop about eyedrops when there were no programs running, and in task manager there was a program called loader.exe running, I ended the process and I haven't seen it since but I know it's still running. According to yahoo answers it's a trojan backdoor - smitfraud/zlob. I haven't found such a thing with all the scans.
Hoping I don't have to just delete everything on my hd and start fresh. That wouldn't be the end of the world cause I don't have that much valuable stuff on here, it would be worth it not to get my bank details and passwords keylogged.
