during the combofix progress I was asked to download and create a windows recovery console because I did not have one or it was out of date- So I did and it went through fine-
Everything seemed to run smoothly with Combofix- I only remember having to click yes for the windows Eula recovery console and nothing much else-

I now get a message from IE that says-

Security alert

Do you want to continue?
in futer do not show this warning

yes,  no, more info--


I clicked NO and closed the browser-

When you say bad, how bad do you mean?

can you tell what type of malware/virus I have?
Do you know if I am infected with any rootkits, or backdoor trojans.  ??

Thanks




Not a lot showing there, but the URL's are bad

Download and Install Combofix
 
Download ComboFix from one of the following locations:
Link 1
Link 2
 
VERY IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop
 
* IMPORTANT - Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. If you have difficulty properly disabling your protective programs, refer to this link here
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • Accept the disclaimer and allow to update if it asks




  • When finished, it shall produce a log for you.
  • Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.[/b]
Notes:
1. Do not mouse-click Combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.
2. Do not "re-run" Combofix. If you have a problem, reply back for further instructions.

3.  If after the reboot you get errors about programmes being marked for deletion then reboot, that will cure it.


Please make sure you include the combo fix log in your next reply as well as describe how your computer is running now

It is the URL's that are bad .. All I need to do now if find what is launching them

Please download to your desktop Short cut cleaner
Then run.

When the Shortcut Cleaner has finished scanning your hard drive it will create a log file on your desktop called sc-cleaner.txt and then display it.
Please post that log

also I was wondering if what I have is bad enough to warrant a clean install--
I would rather not have to do that, but if it was wise to do so with whatever I have then I would-

Thats why I was wondering if you knew exactly what I was dealing with..

thanks again - I hope you had a good weekend

my internet has been down----

I will run OTL again with new info and attach log-

However, I was trying out IE and it seems that the alerts have stopped popping up when I open it at the start- I have not looked further to see if I still get some of the other alerts I was getting with some google searches though-- I will do that after OTL--

However I was using firefox today and I got a strange Trojan horse alert after clicking to go to a site I have gone to before without probelms-

using firefox I did a search on google for "stock market forum" and I then clicked on www.stockrants.com/forum/
then I got this message-

Infection Details
URL:   http://www.stockrants.com/forum/misc.php...
Process:   C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox...
Infection:   HTML:RedirDL-inf [Trj]


it seemed very strange, and it may be related since there is something about a redir? Although this is a trojan horse warning-
I will attach a screenshot-

strange thing-

I also noticed that I cant replicate this trojan horse if I do the same search and click again through google to that site- However if I restart the computer I am able to make the message pop up again

Those alerts a different, they are alerting on a Gzip on that page, could you revisit and see if the alerts still appear
