Please excuse and deviation fromprotocol as it is my first post!
I had no indication of anything wrong until a sudden eruption of AVG, firewall, malware protection etc when something tried to re-direct my webpage.
Briefly a warning flashed up saying I had about 7 infections including 2 trojans and a keylogger, along with ln2000, hijacker etc
There was still no obvious disruption to my machine, although I then realized I must have had hijacker for some weeks without realizing it as I had had the classical symptoms of the about:blank in the address bar.
I have run Malwarebytes AntiMalware, Adaware, Superantispyware and Windows Malicious Tool Remover with good effect. It took several runs to get rid of all the bugs, and sometimes a rescan discovered a new infection! However the last 2 scans with each of the above has been completely clean.
However I am now a bit nervous. None of the scans showed up a keylogger. Some of the bugs only showed up on subsequent scans - is that a flaw or re-infection? I have no idea where I could be getting infected. Is it possible I sill have bugs that are not showing up on my scans? Is there some way of getting an all clear?
Also these scans really only say when you are infected - is there some way of finding screening them out before you get caught?
Many thanks for any help you can offer
