The current problem is that Norton reports that it has blocked an attack on Simba. The detail is that the attacking computer was also Simba and the destination address was www.top-banner.com.
After researching the top-banner reference here and on other sites, I've done the following:
1. Searched hard drive and registry for any instances of QuickBrowser.exe. None were found.
2. Removed AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo Toolbar, and Viewpoint Media Player software from the system.
3. Downloaded HiJackTHis, performed a scan, and looked in the log for QuickBrowser references (none found)
4. Renamed HJT to HJAnalyze.exe and ran it again. Still, no QB indicators found.
Throughout this ordeal, IE has consistently been unable to load. I'm running FireFox to have browser capability. In addition, the computer cannot access any of the shares or shared printers on my home network.
Any ideas? I'm fresh out of them!
