Had a few machines that do this now, after the infection is COMPLETELY gone... you get couldn't be downloaded for anything you download in IE. Repairing/Reinstalling IE doesn't help, replacing windows defender program folder does not help.


Experienced this on vista/7 x86/x64

FYI works in other profiles, not just the one that was originally infected... so it's some sort of registry key issue for currentuser

What about different browser?
