Getting "malicious website blocked" - scan is clean

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a friend's computer, it's running very slow and AnyMalwareBytes is popping up the malicious website blocked every few seconds.  I did a scan and it came up clean. The IP address being blocked is somewhere in Russia, so something bad is running. 

Can I post a HiJack report (or something) so someone can take a look?

OK.  I think the user accounts are valid. I know he uses logmein to remote into the PC, and I thing the other SrvAcct.SERVER account is used for a database program.

I ran FRST Fix. Log is attached.

Ran updated antimalware, nothing detected. (see below)

Ran mbar, nothing detected. Log is attached.

Two things: After the FRST fix, windows update started working and the security updates for IE8 from April were due to be installed. I didn't install them.

Also, when the malicious web site warnings are popping up I ran task manager and there were 8 explorer.exe processes running.

When I started up the machine I was getting to pop-ups constantly. Now they stopped, even though no malware was found.  I'm going to reboot and see what happens.  Below is the antimalwarebytes log.
