HELP! :thumbsup:

Not sure what info you need but hope this helps.

Using Mozilla/Firefox
OS Name: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Version: 5.1.2600 Service pack 3 Build 2600

Got home late last night, (computer had been off all day) after logging in and attempting to check e-mail I got the following in a pop up:

ATTENTION! YOUR WEB PAGE REQUEST HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

This web site has refused your connection as it was reported as a malicious request. This can be caused by Viruses, Trojans, or Malware found on your computer.

In order to resend your request to the website press RESEND REQUEST (please not, this action may cause a permanent block of your computer by the requested website).

In order to activate your security software, please press FIX NOW (recommended).


(it sometimes tells me I need to purchase their product, I have no idea where it is coming from)

====================
I have run full scans using
1. McAfee (twice)
2. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (twice)
3. SUPERAntiSpyware (twice)

Then ran quick scans also (2x's on all of them). I have run all 3 again today (quick scans) and still finding issues. Anything else I can do? I have no idea why this pop up keeps coming up. It pops up no matter what site I try to go to. Never have had it happen before. Should I send an HJT log?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:

Hi Orange Blossom:
I seem to have gotten rid of the pest. I just kept running McAfee, Malwarebytes, and SuperAnti spyware (free edition). I ran each of them about 20 times and then again this morning and now things seem to be back to normal.

Thank you for your response and if it does pop up again I will be in touch. :thumbsup:
