For safety, I browse the internet through Sandboxie, a sandboxing program. My default browser that I use is Google Chrome and I run Windows 7. Last night, Kaspersky (Pure 3.0) started quarantining files from my cache - but after clearing them both in browser and going to the folder to clear out any stragglers, and emptying and deleting the contents of my browser sandbox, it happened again once I pulled up and connected to the internet without downloading anything (I did go to some webpages such as facebook or tumblr to test if it was one of them, but it appeared to be random - I also run adblock on my internet). I repeated this process several times, deleting the files out of quarantine each time.


I'm not being redirected, there's nothing new that's been installed on my computer, no new search bars, no new extensions, none of that kind of weirdness. Only Kaspersky sometimes telling me that file "f_0000a0", or file "f_001698" or "f_001697" from AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache was infected with a trojan.


And each time, the file was a different name but it was all categorized under the name "exploit.win32.MS05-036" which, when I looked up, I could only find information from 2007. I've run a full Kaspersky virus scan and it came up with no infected files, and am currently running a Malwarebytes scan. I've also run Adware cleaner just to see but did not remove or delete anything as I wasn't sure what was safe to remove or not.


Update: Malwarebytes has finished, and again no files/threats were found.


Is this a false positive, or is my computer infected with something weird?

Welcome to BC !


Use these programs to cleanup the computer.

Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the

Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download


Download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.

  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Scan button.
  • When the scan has finished click on Clean button.
  • Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
  • Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.
  • download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message
  • 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"
  • 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.
