Botnet warning from ISP?

1.) After clicking on a link, I was redirected to a shady looking botnet warning from my ISP.

2.) Ran MBAM and SAS (my modem/router actually restarted at this point, with the same warning appearing in SAS's "Definition update complete!" window).

3.) Restarted my computer afterward and was prompted to do a CHKDSK.

 

I use ESET as my realtime antivirus and Windows' firewall and during all of this, neither of which issuing their own alerts during that time.

 

MBAM came back with 0 malicious items detected.

 

SAS came back with 286 adware.tracking cookies, which I removed.

 

The CHKDSK when I restarted my computer scared me.  Everything flashed by so quickly that I didn't catch if there was any issue or not.  The fact that it happened at all is what concerns me.

 

I haven't had an alert since rebooting my computer, but I'm still concerned.  I'm looking at my network activity at the same time, and it's randomly spiking up to 250 MB (amount of read data) and then down to nothing, with one spike recently being up at 1.2 GB.  To be honest, I have no idea what's even normal.  Amount of written data is pretty much a flat line.

 

There are two other computers in the house at the moment, both laptops, and both off, so I assume the problem, if there is one, is my computer. **EDIT** I forgot that there's a second PC on in the house that we use as a phone with MagicJack.

 

Can anyone help me understand what's going on?  Thank you.

 

 

ESET finished scanning while I was typing this out.  2 threats ("potentially unwanted applications") were found and cleaned.

 

I've saved the logs for all of the scans I've done, if they're wanted.

Hello -

Is your ISP Comcast ? If not then please advise us -

We had a similar issue a week ago with a warning from Comcast.

They have their own forum, and this is an ongoing issue there.

Best idea - Please post it to Comcast Forum and look under the general issues listed -

 

Thank You -

A link to the same topic - Note Queen-Evie is a Moderator at Comcast forum -

 

Edited for link -

So, I should take it to TWC and leave you guys alone?  Or go to www.techsupportforum.com like one post in the TWC link suggested for help?

 

Either way, thank you both for the links, and I'm sorry to have wasted your time.  Have a lovely day :tophat:

Yes, we are not sending you away.. It is just that it is their software and they should see what's happening and fix it.

My apologies. That should have been posted in an other topic.

I had this topic open. I was looking for issues with the IP and Road Runner/Time Warner and posted in this topic instead.
