I was cleaning my computer with CCleaner. One of the things cleaned was "wormradar.com iesiteblocker.navfilter" I didn't like the sound of it so I just deleted it. I scanned with malwarebytes and MSE which all appeared ok. Can anybody explain to me what has happened. This wormrader was in the registry.

It's related to a Browser Helper Object (BHO) installed by AVG as part of its Internet Security package. Usually shows an entry like this in various security logs.

O2 - BHO: WormRadar.com IESiteBlocker.NavFilter - {3CA2F312-6F6E-4B53-A66E-4E65E497C8C0} - C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG8\avgssie.dll


In some cases there may be a (no file) or (file missing) notation at the end which indicates AVG was installed, then removed but the uninstalled failed to remove the entry and it becomes an orphaned remnant.

AVG LinkScanner/AVG Security Toolbar and a part of AVGs Internet Security Package.

Quietman7. Thanks very much. you have set my mind at rest. I have had AVG in the past, so it is probably a remnant as you say. I am trying to avoid these remnants now by uninstalling with REVO. It seems to get rid of everything.
