Yesturday something called Privacy protection tried installing itself onto my coputer but was killed instantly by my AVG 2012. Today getting on the internet most of the sites I tried to use ended up being redirected. Nothing else has presented itself yet. I'm not sure if there is still some component of thee privacy protection thing left on my computer or if it's just an annoying tracking cookie that installed itself. I'm running windows xp and have AVG Maleware bytes (just installed recently)and I have ad-aware(since installing the newer version of Avg this is used vary rarely if at all). Currently in the background as I write this I am running Maleware but it's been going for almost two hours and has yet to find anything. Help whenever you can please. Also with the resident shield pop up from avg I noticed the same cookies being detected on open but have no idea where they came from. Tribalfusion Burstnet Mediaplex no matter what web page I'm on from disney to facebook those are the ones being detected. At first I thought nothing of it now I am wondering if those have anything to do with it.
