Yep, if you have a possible rootkit, then read this guide by the local cleaning expert to get the ball rolling, he can most likely get it cleaned up for you.>>

I got a notice this morning on both of my desktops that a Malicious Website was blocked

It appears that it was a Firefox Addon "CutyFox URL Shortner".  It generated the same message on both of my computers when I attempted to paste a shortened URL.  So I removed that Addon and replaced it with the "TinyURL Generator" Addon. 

Everything seems to working fine now. :) :)

Nesivos, glad to hear it. I wish I could figure out how to get rid of mine.

I ran OTS by OldTimer, and the scan completed but the log on notepad didn't pop up. :/
I will run it again and update if I actually get a log this time.
And I ran the Malwarebytes scan again and got this:

Should I try to post in essexboy's thread to direct him here?

Edit: OTS actually did create a txt file in the directory, but it's several, several pages. If I should post this, please let me know.

No, don't post in that thread.  ....technically, this is in the wrong section also, but its a little late to worry about that, if it needs to be moved, it will be. ;)  Next time, though, see "additional options" when you are making a post and post the logs as attachments.  I'll take care of informing Essexboy for you.

The OTS log will be in the same place as you saved the OTS main file

Download aswMBR.exe ( 511KB ) to your desktop.
Double click the aswMBR.exe to run it
Click the "Scan" button to start scan

On completion of the scan click save log, save it to your desktop and post in your next reply

I posted the logs here:

And I will stop posting in here to avoid clutter. I'm sorry for duplicate threads and if a mod needs to close either one, I completely understand.
