I don't know if this is related but google shut my adsense account today so I went looking to delete them from the few sites they are on. I was locked out of two hosting accounts with a message that my IP was banned.
Support told me they were being attacked from my machine and pointed me to Cloudfare and other sites where there was a lot of hot discussion from seeming experts. I have run and am running another scan (MS) at the moment. Word on the forum was that no scan would find these guys - I would need a fresh windows install.
Later on I was on youtube and noticed a couple of downloads that had nothing to do with where I was and what I was doing. I closed YT but couldn't see any suspicious action in Task Manager.
As well as being blocked from my own hosting accounts, I could not access my WP sites on those accounts AND 3 or 4 sites I tried to browse also locked me out.
My question is when is a good time to do the reinstall if these guys can get in so easily through comodo. I'm on Win 7 ultimate 64
