Since last weekend I had quite a few attempted browser hijacks and rogue software download boxes pop up on my my computer, this was after the adverts that where injected with Malware, as reported on various websites last weekend. I had visited one of these websites and had multiple attempted re-directs. These however hadnt happened for a few days. However just this evening I was on Google and was about to click to enter a website, but noticed my browser was redirecting to a webpage antivirusscannerfeatures.com - this was intercepted by my antivirus software ESET and connection was momentarily disconnected. ESET reported this as a js/agent.ncu trojan.
I have ran Windows Defender, ESET antivirus and TDSSKiller, SAS in normal mode, not safe mode and all drew a blank.
Now my questions and again, sorry about my lack of knowledge on these matters. If there is an attempted browser redirect does this mean that when this happens, my computer is getting infected by trojans or would I have to download something to get infected?
As nothing is being detected by ESET, Windows Defender, SAS, MBAM, TDSSKiller - does this mean my machine is free of infections or could something still be present which is casuing these re-directs? If so what else do you recommend I do?
I'm running Windows XP Home with SP3.
Internet Explorer version 8.0
Thanks for all your help and assistance in advance.
