My PC picked up something unpleasant earlier this week and I've been running all sorts to try to clear it (see below). I've cleared a lot of junk off there, but I still have an issue with IE windows opening spontaneously going to random sites such as 'broadcaster.com', 'mydebtrelief.com' and a smaller window with Casale Media.
I already had spybot S&D, and have run AVG antivirus, AVG anti-spyware, plus an older version of ewido, and Brute Force Uninstaller. I've also run adawareSE and just installed Panda Antivirus (as recommended here), and downloaded the outerinfo uninstaller and ran that. They are all now coming up clean.
One of them found smitfraud, there was also an ldcore.dll issue (that took a couple of hours to sort). There was also an outerinfo issue (it was in the 'add/remove programs' list, and it wouldn't allow me to download the uninstaller through IE), but those are now resolved, I think.
I've run HJT a few times, but can't find anything obvious in its logs, and as I mentioned, all the packages above are coming up clean. A fresh install of ZoneAlarm also isn't spotting or stopping these windows from opening.
I'm a bit flummoxed, to say the least, so any help would be appreciated.
