I updated my Adobe Flash from Adobe.com and after my internet browsers all stopped working. I installed MBAM and it blocked dozens of internet windows with outgoing information to a Russian IP address. I have ran MBAM, and AVG scans. Windows malicious software removal, TFC, ADW cleaner, Junkware removal tool, and Ccleaner. None of the virus scans have found anything, however MBAM continues to block dozens of attempts to send out information every 10 minutes roughly. When in task manager several instances of IExplorer are running when there are no webpages open.

 

Please help, I've ran out of ideas.

Let's try one more...

ESET.
  • Hold down Control and click on this link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
  • Click the esetonlinebtn.png button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
  • Click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the esetsmartinstaller_enu.png icon on your desktop.
  • Check "YES, I accept the Terms of Use."
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives" and "Remove found threats"
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
  • Scan potentially unwanted applications
  • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
  • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, click List Threats
  • Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Click the Back button.
  • Click the Finish button.
  • NOTE:Sometimes if ESET finds no infections it will not create a log.
