successfully blocked access to a potentially malicious website


Recommended Posts



I've seen other people already had similar problems. I get this pop up every 5-10 minutes notifying me that the malwarebytes anti malware has 'successfully blocked access to a potentially malicious website'. a number is also given, for example, type: outgoing. Kaspersky anti virus currently finds no virus, Ad aware free anti virus plus, Malwarebytes anti malware, superantispyware and tdss killer also report the computer as clean. I have torrent software running, bur even if i shut it down, the pop up apppears, but less frequently. I have tried running combofix several times, but it gets stuck performing scan. mbr log:


 Stealth MBR rootkit/Mebroot/Sinowal/TDL4 detector 0.4.2 by Gmer, http://www.gmer.net

Windows 5.1.2600 Disk: ST32000641AS rev.CC13 -> Harddisk1\DR1 -> \Device\Ide\IdeDeviceP2T1L0-22 
device: opened successfully
user: MBR read successfully
kernel: MBR read successfully
user != kernel MBR !!! 
error: Read  The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.
sometimes it scans for 6 or more hours and nothing happens, the pc clock runs normaly, but after few hours it gets stuck. i never click on a combofix tab and don't use the pc while combofix is working. os is windows xp sp3. i would appreciate if anyone could help me explain what is going on. thank you.

another thing i haven't mentioned in my first post, since i thought the problem was solved. i just found out it wasn't. the computer started freezing for for few seconds every few minutes about a week ago. it's completely random. so it hapens very often and then again it doesn't for a day. this is why l installed all the anti virus software in the first place. just tried to run dds and it hangs everytime. i waited for half an hour the first time and about 8 minutes the second time. eventviewer doesn't show any warnings, I'm not an expert though. all 5 hdd passed long generic seatools tests. also disabled each disk, except the system disk and the problem was still there. i've run prime95 all three types of tests for about an hour and no errors hapened. the pc actually froze during the prime95 tests. i've noticed because i was constantly moving the mouse to see if it will happen. any ideas what I should do?
