I got the following message below while playing Zuma Blitz on Facebook with Chrome as my browser. When the pop-up came up, clicking anywhere else in Chrome resulted in a beep. I closed it down using the task manager. I just ran MalWareBytes last night, and ran SpyBot just now. Nothing but the usual cookie tracking stuff. I have Free AVG as my anti-virus.

Did this message come in through Facebook somehow? I suspect it's one of those bogus security s/ware ploys, but did it come through a game in Facebook, or did it make its way to me another way?

The page at ad47669.d2n3.net says:

E-Set has found suspicious activity on your pc and will perform some action on your pc

OK <button>


Thanks.

Jane

Hello Jane. There could have been malicious script in either. As you do NOT have ESET I suspect it was a rogue attack.

To be sure...
Reboot into Safe Mode with Networking
How to enter safe mode(XP/Vista)
Using the F8 Method
Restart your computer.
When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
Select the option for Safe Mode with Networking using the arrow keys.
Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode
.


>>>> Download this file and doubleclick on it to run it. Allow the information to be merged with the registry.

RKill....

Download and Run RKill
  • Please download RKill by Grinler from one of the 4 links below and save it to your desktop.

    Link 1
    Link 2
    Link 3
    Link 4

  • Before we begin, you should disable your anti-malware softwares you have installed so they do not interfere RKill running as some anti-malware softwares detect RKill as malicious. Please refer to this page if you are not sure how.
  • Double-click on Rkill on your desktop to run it. (If you are using Windows Vista, please right-click on it and select Run As Administrator)
  • A black screen will appear and then disappear. Please do not worry, that is normal. This means that the tool has been successfully executed.
  • If nothing happens or if the tool does not run, please let me know in your next reply

Do not reboot your computer after running rkill as the malware programs will start again. Or if rebooting is required run it again.


If you continue having problems running rkill.com, you can download iExplore.exe or eXplorer.exe, which are renamed copies of rkill.com, and try them instead.


Rerun MBAM (MalwareBytes) like this:

Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan (normal mode).
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot into normal mode.

Please ask any needed questions,post logs and Let us know how the PC is running now.

No, nothing like that. I didn't click the "ok" button to allow it to do their "action" which I assume is what would have actually caused an infection.
