I visited a car repair forum and my Avast anti-virus popped up and said I was being attacked by nine different "things." It blocked them. However, I exited out of the website and then ran a MalWareBytes Scan, which said I had five infections, which it cleared.
A few days later, went back to the website where I "caught" the malware, no problem. Then several days later, back to the website and I had another attack. This one included defender.exe, which pasted an icon in my quicklaunch tray. MalWareBytes once again cleared the trouble, so I thought. I also ran Super Anti-Spyware after MBAM and Super Anti-Spyware found nothing.
The problem is, ever since then, often, Firefox "can't" connect to Google servers, or if I am connected to Google, often times I cannot type into the search box or if I do, I can't get google to search, either by hitting enter or hitting the search button.
I have no trouble reaching other webpages. And the google issue only happens occassionally. I'm thinking it might be some sort of "redirecting" virus, which has been partially disabled by MBAM. Scans by MBAM, AVAST and Super Anti-Spyware show nothing.
I did just run a HJT scan. Any solutions?
