Hi,
I've noticed two issues over the last few days, firstly that IE has been taken out of protected mode (not by me) and refuses to go back. As noone else has access to this machine this has me somewhat concerned. Avira picked up and removed EXP/CVE-2010-4452.AN whilst MS Security essentials and MWB have failed to detect anything.
Secondly, a few days back i was browsing and simouthouse (a flight sim site) started failing to load pages. I initially put this down to a server crash at their end however this was not the case. I found that re-initialising my router would grant me access for a few minutes at a time. As of today I now have full access once again but am now having the same trouble with Facebook. I've tried clearing temp internet files and the DNS cache to no effect. This problem applies to every machine on the netwrok with both IE and Firefox, so I'm thinking its probably more to do with the router itself, not sure though.

Additionally I should state that this machine was infected with TDL4, and have been given the all clear by staff at this site.

OS Win 7
BB wireless conection (on all machines)

This is the malware related topic. There is something preventing me from activatiing protected mode in Explorer, as I have recently removed TDL4 I suspect there was something left over that has so far managed to evade detection. As for the seemingly random individual site failures I'm at a loss to explain. Whether they are related or not I do not know.
