  1. Also, I can't find a way to mark the thread as solved. Yes .... victory!
  2. VICTORY! The remnants of the malware remained in the Firefox tiles! When cleaning out the system, I made the very useful error, when I failed to clear history. I didn't imagine that the problem would lie there. It was a Firefox helper who suggested that it could be the tiles ( jscher2000 ). ... and it was. Firefox Application Error unknown software exception (0xc0000409) occurred in the application at location 0x00406b64  This still exists. Whether it is a leftover of malware removal ... maybe we'll never know. I guess that I must bite the bullet
  3. Hello everybody ... I have a suggestion. I am currently working on cracking some malware that has escaped identification by AVG real time, and subsequently by Malwarebytes, SpyBot, Superantispyware, ETES, Hitman. The initial tags were based upon what I knew at the time of first posting. However ... knowledge has been gained. I've tracked the source of the malware down to (I am almost certain) putrr18.com. Searching putrr18.com brings lots of malware reports, and how to get rid of it. It no longer identifies the domain name. Instead it uses IP addresses : 198.134
  4. Progress (perhaps) Searching ipinfo.io I found this: https://ipinfo.io/ Route This was the closest to I presume that it is in the block of 98 addresses putrr18.com 98 Upon searching putrr18.com I found lots of links to removing it as a virus. I reckon that this must be it ? ------------ Further ... I note that Malwarebytes is blocking addresses: 241 242 243 244 IE. it is not just .243 ---------- I ran a search on files c
  5. Refreshed firefox 52.9 (rather than re-install, as it was suggested that refresh should fix the problems). Ran IP Location Find: Geolocation data from ipinfo.io (Product: API, real-time) IP Address Country Region City United States New York Westbury ISP Organization Latitude Longitude Webair Internet Development Company Inc. Webair Internet Development Company Inc. 40.7570 -73.5814 AND New tab in Firefox is still displaying: unknown softw
  6. Opening a new firefox tab : unknown software exception (0xc0000409) occurred in the application at location 0x00406b64 I appear to have fixed this problem, by disabling 'HTML5 video everywhere'. However, Malwarebytes is still blocking (outbound) What is causing this connection I wonder.
  7. Malwarebytes blocked (outbound) I got this checked on scanurl.net and the result was that it is not a valid URL. So Malwarebytes is identifying a malicious website, but I am struggling to know what it is, and why Firefox is trying to connect to it. Also, the software that is causing the connection, hasn't been picked up as malicious. Does anybody have any thoughts on this conundrum?
  8. On another thread, I noted that someone had identified a threat by using ESET scanner. I researched this app ... apparently it can give a false positive (to get you to buy), but otherwise it was stated to be a superior malware scanner, as compared to the free scanners. How true this statement is, I obviously don't know ... but I gave it a whirl. Here is what it found (after other apps had declared the system clear): Win32/CNETInstaller.B potentially unwanted application C:\Documents and Settings\Ace Administrator\Application Data\Sun\Java\jre1.7.0_51\java_sp.dll a var
  9. I was using AVG anti virus and mb3-setup-consumer- Mouse behaviour If left untouched for a period, my mouse needed a button click in order to function. It seemed to be moving slowly, and would drift upwards, when hovering over a link. Modded the setup to max speed, but it still wasn't right. (In all my decades of computing, I've never experienced this mouse behaviour) I had watched F1 via a stream - many such streams launch an advert new window if the stream page is clicked. This would be a good way of forcing the user to click the page. Opening a n
