Earlier today, Avast! Anti-virus popped up with a message saying that it had repelled a Malicious URL. The process it was caused by was called C:\WINDOWS\system32\msvcm8032.exe. Since then, the same message has popped up several times, all with the same URL: 188.8.131.52. Luckily Avast! has been preventing it causing any damage, but it's still lurking on my system.
I have already ran a quick scan with Avast! and a quick scan with MalwareBytes. Both of them come up clean. I have also scanned the process itself with both Avast! and Malwarebytes, and still, coming up clean. The pop-ups are starting to get sparser, but they still keep showing up at some point.
This is the first time I've ever gotten something on my computer I can't remove myself.
I have another question, though. I am running both Avast! protection, and the MalwareBytes Protection Trial. Do you think the two might be interfering with each other? I just need to make sure I'm not knocking out their chances of finding anything in their scans. I am also running Windows XP SP3.
Thanks for any help!
