I was wandering around some part of Pinterest looking at pictures and clicked on a person's name to see their boards. It took me to the person's personal website. Kaspersky started flashing that a trojan was attempting to download.
I have scanned with Kaspersky Rescue Disk, Malwarebytes online scanner, Super Antispyware free, Avast free, ESET. All come up clean.
My system does seem a little flakey, although I don't think it started then. I lose connection to my ISP sometimes and it gets slow/stalls (resolving host). My keyboard has been acting odd in some applications recently, too, like email (does not type letters correctly, kept pasting 'test testing test ...' in instead once). Kaspersky's virtual keyboard also did not respond correctly once, however, when something odd was happening. That might have been a Java/Flash issue on a site that wanted an update (not Chrome's version). Not sure about that recollection though.
Pinterest investigated and concluded there were no malicious links on their site related to that user account and suggested it might be something on my computer that caused the problem.
I am wondering if a more in-depth look would see something, as I read that malware can be active but go undetected.
This system was reformatted a couple months ago. I don't visit risky sites or use pirate software although I do browse/read online and do image searches for benign things. I look for the Kaspersky greenlight on websites although I did click a gray (unknown) flag once or twice (seemingly innocuous).
