Test URLs before visiting them?

Q: Test URLs before visiting them?

Lots of people on social media sites like using URL shorteners to link people to different sites. Only problem I have with this, is that I cannot see the destination. Is there anything out there that can allow me to test a links' identity before visiting it?

A: Test URLs before visiting them?

I have been rendered completely dumbfounded by a very recently encountered problem.

I was on facebook earlier tonight when I was told about a terrible film called Birdemic. My friend linked the wikipedia page through a comment. When I clicked it (It was definitely a link to wikipedia), I came across a "Server not found" page and upon closer inspection, instead of saying "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birdemic:_Shock_and_Terror" it brought me to "http://en.facebook.com/wiki/Birdemic:_Shock_and_Terror", which obviously doesn't exist. I tried going through a google search, which will do the same thing, and through the integrated search engine in Firefox, and everytime it would redirect me to the nonexistent en.facebook.com. Curiously, the Welcome page for wikipedia works, as does the mobile site (by changing it to en.m.wikipedia.org). I tried going to different wikipedia entries as well, but its the same problem. Every time I try to correct it in the URL bar, it will just change back.

If this is a virus, it is the most ridiculously trivial and mundane virus I have ever had, however it would also be the most confusing to me.

If it is not a virus, I have no idea what it could be. I have cleared my history, web cache, cookies, everything. In addition to Firefox, I also tried it in IE, to identical results. AVG scan is currently underway, 82%, no threats found.

Any ideas?

I remember about two months ago I was doing stress testing just to test the stability of my computer. Whenever I did a test that tested a lot of RAM, the test would fail within minutes and it would say "Execution Halted.."

Just recently I did an RMA with kingston and they sent me 2 brand new sticks of RAM which I installed. I just now got around to testing again but the test still fails within minutes - I am stumped.

Is it possible my memory controller / motherboard is bad? The RAM is brand new.

Hi,

I recently ran a scheduled diagnostic test of my PC with the manufacturer's diagnostic software. I received two error messages and the advice to promptly replace my hard drive. The first message was Failed (Error code: WHD20-1VR) and the second was Failed (Error code: WHD16-T57). The apply to Targeted Read test and Smart Short Self Test respectively.

So I ran Chkdsk for the C: drive and received no error messages.

Which is correct and what should I do about it? The error message won't go away on the software.

Thanks for helping.

 

A:Question: Failed Targeted Read Test and SMART Short Self Test

CHKDSK is a very basic check that mostly checks file system and can be set to scan for bad sectors. The manufacturer's diagnostics actually check the physical drive to make sure its operating within the designed parameters and is more thorough.

You should replace the drive.

hi Smurfette,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
The image below is the breakdown on how the LSC error codes mean.

The SMART short self-test that failed may have detected some certain sectors on the drive that are bad and predicted an imminent HDD failure so I would recommend you contact the lenovo helpdesk and report your findings as you likely need to send the unit for service.

Hi there, Naveen-
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
The SMART Self-Test Unit means that the diagnostic utility failed to read some certain sectors on the drive and predicted an imminent HDD failure.
 
If with the test you did you are getting a SMART test or a smart short test failure then I believe you need to back up your data and be ready to replace the drive.
 
I recommend you contact Lenovo support and report your findings as you likely need to send the unit for service.

I need some help--I believe my son 12 year old son is visiting inappropriate website while we are at work. At the end of the night I clean out the temporary internet folder to free up space on the computer and last night I was just scan the folder and found all kinds of porn websites!! So I clean it out and when I logged on this evening the sites he normally visits are there but so where other porn sites.

Tell if Im wrong but is it true that every website you visit is recorded in the temp internet folder? and so popups get space there and when those cookies automatically go there is the computer is just left on which is what he is trying to tell me.

So is there another way to find out a list of websites that have been visited.

I really need to get these questions asked.

Hi, thought I'd see if all is well on the folk's PC, since I'm not up close and personal with it like this often. For one thing I think the google toolbar entries are different than they are on other machines I have it on. (Mainly want to make sure nothing sinister is going on, but would also be interested in shutting off everything that can be. For example I did install Windows Messenger and enable Remote Assistance since we are going to try that when the need arises after I leave again, but assume I should figure out how to keep Windows Messenger from being on all the time. It's not enabled in msconfig or anything.)

Hello wise ones,

I often have guests staying w/ me from around the world that I know little about other than intuition, what is on their profile and written references from other hosts. Through www.couchsurfing.com

I am very concerned letting them use my PC as they may download a virus or install a key logger. (Kapersky is installed and shows up under the guest identity on XP. But I think perhaps they could turn it off and bypass it?)

What would be the best way to allow them computer access?

1. Get an old PC for them to use? (if they are on my router can they access my other PC's personal information? If so how do I limit them from accessing my PC info?)

2. Install a software program like used at a Internet Cafe?

Any other ideas?

Kind Thanks!

so im wondering if there is another way to change these settings? or why is it saying that? we had a storm yesterday so I figured maybe its down due to that, but i can't imagine it not being fixed as of yet.
thanks in advance.

It may have damaged the router
you could try resetting the router - there will be a reset button on the back, this will take it back to factory condition, however, that will mean resetting all the settings, and if it resets and still will not let you log into the router, then you will probably no longer have any internet access, as you can not set this up....

If you have the Setup CD that may have come with the router - you maybe able to access the settings via setup CD.

Ok, where to start. First, I've had this PC for about 4 years without any problems. I have my computer set to go to a blank screensaver after 1 min of not being used, and power off the monitor after 2 minutes of not being used.

The other week, the image on my entire computer screen would shake, and sometimes you could smell something burning. Sometimes, when the screen shaked so bad the monitor would just go blank for a few seconds, then back to what I was doing. (BTW, it has nothing to do with whatever I'm doing on the computer, the shaking screen happens regardless)

I thought it was just a problem with the monitor, until today when I actually shut my PC off after recieving Windows updates last night. When I went to turn it back on, audio came out of my speakers saying "system failed CPU test" I get all the lights on my PC tower on, the three lights on my keyboard are lit up, but my monitor's light is on stanby orange. There is no image on my screen whatsoever. When I push the power button on my monitor, it turns green for a few seconds, then shuts off, never displaying any image. My mouse has the red light coming from the bottom. When I hit the power button on my PC tower, nothing happens,

So I turn off the power strip, and tuen it back on, then hit the power on my tower, this time I get a "system failed VDA (or VGA) test" sound from my speakers. Everything else is like i said in the previous paragraph.

Hi Guys,

Just recently got a Powercolor HD 5850 gpu , and have ran a test on the latest Passmark performance test benchmarking software.

It seems about right on the 3d score with around 2200

But the 2d score is very low at around 320

Is this normal?

Just want to make sure everything is running right with it.

A friend has an Nvidia gtx 275 and its scores like over 900 on the 2d section!

I thought the 2 cards would be pretty much the same if not the HD 5850 being slightly better.

Proberly just me being fussy , but like I say I want to make sure all is right with it , otherwise its going back lol.

Cheers

Paul.

A:Anyone with a HD 5850 run a test on Passmark performance test?

I just ran the 64-bit version of this:
3D overall 2425.5
2D overall 369.2

**edit**
I don't think I like this benchmark. I recently installed the June DirectX redist, so I'm up to date. This thing wanted to, and did install it's own "updated" DirectX files, which I found odd. After I ran the benchmark, I played a little Bad Company 2... had my very first crash to desktop... ever.

Coincidence? Perhaps, but I uninstalled this pos and re-ran the June redist anyway.

Hey I have an old Inspiron B130. Seems the battery is bad, or maybe it's just not charging, or maybe it's just not working in some other way? My question is how can I test?
I don't want to just rush out and buy a new battery without knowing if the laptop battery subsystem is working. The laptop came from a person who "claims" that the battery is actually a new one. I can't verify, so I want to see if I can test the laptop itself.
I wonder if there are wiring diagrams or something where I can just test a few of the pins. Or I wonder if the pins are testable at all without a battery plugged in?

How can I make sure the battery subsystem works before I buy a new battery?
 

A:Test battery and test output from laptop?

If you can't find any diagrams, just get a multitester, and with power off and pc unplugged, take out the battery and find pos / neg terminals on the computer against the chassis (unless they are labelled on the battery by chance?). Once you know which terminal is which, put the battery in the computer, let it charge (does the charge light come on? I should have asked that before). for a couple hours, unplug it and check the power. You may not see the full 11 volts (at least that's what I think the battery is on that model), but if it's charging, you should always have at least some residual power...

There's not a lot of difference between the vendors, except for features, so I personally would not pay for any Android antivirus apps. A very basic app can provide decent protection against unwanted apps. I have recently installed Bitdefender Free on my smartphone, it scans when I download apps from Play Store, all without any bloatware or nag screens, as I have previously experienced in other free apps.

Again, antivirus for Android is optional.

Hello,
 
So I've always wondered if you can get a virus/malware just by visiting a website?
 
I always thought this was a No, because I believe a user is only infected when he/she opens up that malware/virus FILE, once you open it up and install it then you are infected.
 
I know there are drive by downloads, but your anti-virus or anti-malware program should detect the file and automatically delete it.
 
Malware/virus can't infect your computer unless you open the file, right?

A:can you get a virus/malware just by visiting a website?

Hi NEMS Yes, it's entirely possible to get infected by simply visiting a website. Most commonly via what we call "Exploit Kits". Right now, EK are used to deliver a lot of dangerous malware (such as banking trojans and Cryptoware) to computers worldwide. So using a standard Antivirus and Antimalware won't cut it. Using a program that protects your web browser against such threats, like Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit will. but your anti-virus or anti-malware program should detect the file and automatically delete it.This is assuming that the file pushed on your system is already known to your Antivirus or Antimalware (in its database). If it's not, it won't do anything. And we all know that no products have a 100% detection ratio.Edit: For more information on Exploit Kits and how they work, see the article below.Tools of the Trade: Exploit Kits

Greetings from Finland!

Thanks for a very useful page!

After a visit on a warez-page the weirdest things happened to my computer..
Luckily, it seems like most of them are gone now, thanks to this page! I found the program HijackThis and were able to get
rid of some annoying stuff, for instance that "http://ehttp.cc/?". What is that by the way?

One thing is still bothering me though and believe that's because of the same warez-page. It's kind of strange acctually...
Some pages (for instance http://www.suprnova.org/ and http://www.aftonbladet.se/) started to run REALLY slow! And it doesn't
seem to have anything to do with the internet connection itself; when i check Task Manager-->Performance-->CPU Usage, it's
like 100%! Despite I don't do anything!
What is the problem and moreover, how do I fix it? Would it help you if I posted one of those "hijack-logs"?

Thanks in advance!

I am attaching the relevant zip file.

1.59 GHz, 448 MB of RAM
Windows XP Media Center edition (service pack 3).

I bought it two years or so ago. Since as long as I can remember I have had this problem.

when I am on my browser (I use chrome, firefox, and IE) my wireless connection will cut out after a while. I have noticed that if I am on just one site (example: Pandora.com) it can be fine for hours. But once I start going to different sites, I eventually get kicked off. It can be any website, Facebook, youtube, etc.

When I lose connectivity, I refresh my wireless connections and only the printer comes up. If I try to right click on the tray icon to repair internet connection, it freezes. I am guessing that this is a hardware problem. (?) Though I'm not extremely technical with computers, I know my way around most issues that can arise.

I have reformatted my hard drive (twice) and all my software is up to date. I have run AVG scan and Ad Aware scan hundreds of times. Can anyone offer assistance? Thank you very much!

Hi all.

This occurs with both internet explorer and firefox, and my flashplayer and windows media player are both updated. ive searched my computer with spybot and adaware.

Hi!
 
Today, while  visiting a website with IE, I suddenly got a new window which contained a message from "NSA+ FBI" ( or smthg like that), telling me that I am at risk of being thrown to jail for the next 5-7 years unless I pay a fine of about 150$ either with my credit card or by buying some sort of prepaid phone cards. It was imposible for me to close the window or to use CTRL+ ALT+DEL so as to close it from Task Manager. So, I shut down the computer from the start menu.
 
After restarting it, the internet works much slower.
 
Since then, I ran a quick scan with my Security Essentials (updated right before starting the scan), which lasted for about 70 minutes (!!!) but found nothing . I have also performed a scan using Microsoft's Safety Scanner, which returned the result that there are no unwanted programs on my computer.
 
But if no unwanted software is on my computer, then how come did I got that screen asking me for money on behalf of CIA/ FBI.. etc... ?????

I am trying to figure out why I cannot send out emails while I am visiting family. I have access to the internet and can receive emails without problem, but I cannot send out messages, even though I have confirmed that my outgoing email settings are correct. I can send out emails when I am at home and accessing my home network wirelessly, but when I visit family, I cannot send out emails. I am using a laptop with Vista and all of the current Windows updates and am using Outlook 2007 for email. My mom has the same problem when she comes to my house though. Her email works perfectly at home, but when she comes to my house and uses my network, she can receive email, but not send. Any thoughts?

A:can receive, not send out when visiting friends

If the person you are visiting has different ISP than you, you will have to connect to that ISP's network in order to send mail with an email client.

You can check with YOUR ISP to find out what settings you need to change OR see if is an FAQ which will guide you through configuring the client for use when traveling OR you can use your ISP web mail.

I think this is the website where the malware came from, but I'm not sure. I've included the URL here, in case it helps someone figure out what my problem is.

I didn't click on any of the advertisements or install any new programs or download any files. But within 5 minutes of my visiting the page, popups began to rapidly show up. I usually use FireFox, but they were coming from Internet Explorer. They were coming very fast- maybe 20 within as many seconds, so I unplugged my wireless router and forcibly disconnected my computer from the internet.

I used another computer to look up tutorials on how to get rid of a malware problem, and downloaded recommended programs. I also edited the registry myself and deleted registry keys that were obviously associated with the malware that hadn't been there before (named things like "vvxxasjdfdsf.exe" and such) but this malware is obviously beyond my limited expertise, because it is still there.

My computer hasn't been connected to the internet since. (I'm using a different computer to post here.)

When the computer's on, Internet Explorer attempts to connect to the internet every few minutes. For the first few minutes where I didn't realize I had a problem, I'm pretty sure it connected to more malware sites and downloaded more crap onto my computer. Spybot seems to have gotten almost everything, except for the very stubborn root problem, which Spybot says is "Smitfraud.C"

I am rephrasing the question to be more specific. I cannot see how my first request was inappropriate. I have not needed to set up a network in years, so I hope someone has the answer to my question.

I am paying for my home internet, and I do not want anyone visiting pron websites. Is their any tool that can alert me if one of my friends is accessing inappropriate material on the website. Someone closed my question before, so I guess knowing how to share their internet histories is NOT the proper answer.

I will not stand for people looking at bad websites, so I hope someone can point me to a decent solution.

I've had this problem for quite some time. Last time there's just no video showing even though there's audio playing in the background. But now when I open Dailymotion on my mozilla firefox, it crashes immediately.

I've uninstalled MF and Flash player and reinstall them again but it's still not working. Dailymotion is working fine with IE, and this depends as well.

Please help me thanks a lot.

Version of mozilla - 3.6.24 (i'm using the old version one cause there are some add on that are disabled in the latest verion)
Version of IE - 8.0

A:Mozilla keeps crashing when visiting Dailymotion

Your old browsers can be causing this problem. I have no problem going to the website.

We recently added a filter to our computer because of our children. Each week we get a report on sites that we attempted to be opened, but are blocked. There are several, but one in particular is on there all the time and has a high percentage. I am wondering if anyone recognizes it and if it is possible that somehow there is something on our computer that is automatically leading us there. We have not gone to it ever as far as I know.

It is: eserviceds1x.us.dell.com

We have both AdAware SE and Spybots and run them regularly.

Hey guys,

I have a friend who has an adult filtering program on his computer. I get a daily email with all of the sites his computer goes to. I know that they are not visiting these sites personally, so, there has to be some malware/adware that is causing it. I also learned today that there are a number of popups, probably related to these sites.

The websites are:

msn.com yahoo.com, foxsports.com, youtube.com, yimg.com, microsoft.com, facebook.com, gamevance.com, conduitservices.com
Also - it has been running slower as of late.

Thanks for the help.

I ran malwarebytes in safe mode and it found the following threats:

Hi,
 
I opened a link I probably shouldn't have on Facebook and ever since Avast! has been giving me the 'Suspicious item has been detected' dialog every thirty seconds or so.
 

 
Infection Details:
URL:          http://r1---sn-8pgbpohxqp5-ac5e.gvt1.com/crx/blobs/QgAAAC6..(more stuff but it's hidden)
Infection:   Win32:Evo-gen [Susp]
Process:   C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe 

 
Now, the URL seems telling. The domain gvt1.com is owned by Google, and a CRX is a Chrome extension, so I suspect it's trying to download a malicious Chrome extension onto my PC. And it would appear it attempts to download it every 30 seconds, but Avast! keeps blocking it. However, I have no idea what to do to stop it from doing this and indeed whether or not my PC is already pwned. 
 
I've run a full MBAM scan and thus far found no hint of any malware in memory nor in the file system, but I'm still scared my PC's been pwned and I don't know whether I should shut it down or run rkill or what.
 
Thank you for your help.

I've never run across this before.

On our small business server, we need to access our credit card processing webpage. EVERY time we access this page and log in, the internet goes down on the server and it can't load any webpage. This ONLY occurs on our server. Accessing our provider's webpage on any other machine works fine. The only way to solve the issue is to physically unplug the ethernet cable, restart the computer, and plug it back in.

Could this be a virus?

Hello,

I am running a P4 Q6600 with Windows XP SP2. I use Firefox, just updated to 12, and have AVG 2012 loaded
(unfortunately, it lists my current AVG Safe Search as incompatible with Firefox 12).
I went to a legitimate business website, and apparently the website has been recently hijacked because
instead of the expected content (that was in the Google cache), an illegitimate-appearing virus warning
appeared in the browser window. I closed the window, but found thereafter that when visiting google.com with Firefox,
Firefox always said it was "Connecting to 213.174.137.82...". This is my main symptom. I didn't observe
this on other intact computers, but I found others on BleepingComputer that had infections associated
with this address (such as http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic445802.html, but with slightly different
symptoms -- Google seems to work okay for many searches in my case). I don't perceive significant slowing,
but strangely after running DDS and GMER for a while, my mouse stopped working (I plugged in another one
and it worked for a short while but also stopped) and I started getting delayed write errors. Upon rebooting, the computer
seems to work okay but it still displays the "Connecting to 213.174.137.82..." message with Firefox browsing google.com.

I visited the business website that seemed to initiate the problems again but on a Linux computer, and
I found the URL redirected to a suspicious-appearing .ru address, wher... Read more

The title speaks for itself. I recently set up remote desktop to my computer at work. It works fine when i actually want to connect. However when i am just surfing around the remote desktop connection(where it asks for login name and password) pops up out of nowhere. For instance when i go to check at www.comcast.net the home page pops up along the Remote Desktop login screen. It's more of an annoyance then anything else. Is there a setting i need to tweak somewhere that i've missed?

Hi all,

First post bc I can't find a good answer to this question anywhere.

I play guitar and as such, I frequently visit www.ultimate-guitar.com. For the past few months, whenever I visit the site, there is a good chance of my computer spontaneously just shutting down. It doesn't happen every time, but it happens a good portion of the time that I go to the site, and it only ever happens on that site.

I'm currently running 64-bit Vista Home Premium. This happens on both Chrome and Firefox.

Over the last few days, any time I try to visit youtube my computer completely freezes.  The mouse doesn't move, I can't push ctrl+alt+del, nothing at all works.  The screen just freezes while the page is loading.  The computer doesn't seem to be busy working when it freezes.  It seems to just stop completely.  I do not have this problem with any other websites.  I have scanned for viruses with Spybot and Malwarebytes.  I downloaded Ccleaner and used that too, as I thought it might be some sort of registry error.  No issues have been found.  There are no other sypmtoms of problems with the computer.  It is not running slowly.  Everything seems normal except for youtube. 
 
I am using Firefox 20.0..1  There are no strange add ons or toolbars that I use.  I use Windows 7.  Any ideas what might be causing the problem?

A:Visiting youtube causes computer to freeze completely

I did a little more experimenting, and discovered that the problem only seems to be when using firefox.  Chrome and Internet explorer load the page.  I did, however notice that the Samsung ad at the top of youtube had an error loading.  The problem with Firefox seems to occur at the moment the Samsung ad finishes loading.  Perhaps it is related specifically to that.

Ok, I'm at wit's end. So I gotta ask for help.
I use IE7 browser and I'm getting the Sysfader error
whenever I visit Google Video, and of course the
browser goes down. This has only started happening,
I guess past six weeks or so. The Sysfader error does not
happen on any other video site, even youTube, just
Google Videos.

I've done all the troubleshooting and searched

I got all ATI stuff and a REAL-TEK sound card.

-Under my System Performance in Control Panel,
all the scrolling and fade effects are turned off
(not checked) And I thought that's what the Sysfader
thing was, but that's not it, still happening.

-I've disabled all the IE7 Add-ons except "cookies"
and the "Adobe Shockwave flash Active-x" cause the

And restarted the browser and rebooted etc.

Besides MAC address filtering, is there another good / easier way to keep visiting laptops etc from plugging in a CAT cable and accessing a LAN protected by a perimeter firewall?

thnx in advance,

A:Securing jacks on small biz LAN from visiting laptops?

Aside from having switches which you can turn off the ports on unsed LAN drops, you'll have to configure and setup some sort of NAC or 802.1x solution. On some managed switches there is an option to do port security which you can program approved MAC addresses that are permitted on that port or have the switch learn the first MAC address to lock it down to. This is way different than MAC address filtering you're thinking about on SOHO/SMB wireless routers which only work on the wireless portion.

The last two times I have visited a mediafire download page, I have been redirected to a dodgy page asking me update programs such as Firefox and Java (even though I uninstalled Java over a year ago). The two domains I've seen for the page are lpmxp2.com and updowntot.com. I didn't stick around long enough to get a screenshot, but the two pages appeared to be identical with the exception of the alleged program update displayed. The first time this happened was three days ago, and the redirect only happened once that day. I visited mediafire again today, and the same thing happened.

I can't find any recent discussion on this anywhere so it doesn't appear to be a recent known problem. Any help would be appreciated.

Update: I ran a scan with AdwCleaner, and it found and removed this key from my registry: HKCU\Software\AppDataLow\Software. I'm going to run a Malwarebytes scan now.

I've seen a problem similar to this reported on other occasions, but no obvious consensus about the cause.

I'm using Windows XP SP3. When I visit any folder with .AVI files in it, Windows Explorer dies with a message bout "data execution prevention." This problem has started occurring since March, 2009, because I have a folder with an AVI file that I was able to visit at the time, and now I cannot do it.

I assume that there is something wrong with one of my codecs. Is there an easy to find out which codec Windows is trying to use? I've attached a list of the codecs I have.

A:Visiting a folder with AVI files crashes Windows Explorer

Note that that window only shows VfW (video for windows) codecs, not directshow ones.
The list looks pretty standard for any Windows XP installation, except for the Morgan Motion JPEG decoder.
Do you have any codec pack installed?

If I recall, earlier versions of DivX (circa version 5) had many DEP problems, but they fixed it eventually.

Does the folder in question have a lot of files?
Does the folder you visit have thumbnail view enabled? If not, how long can you stay in the folder without the DEP error? If long enough, try hovering your mouse over the files one by one until you get the error.
Once you identify the file that triggers error, open it with gspot and find out what codec it uses. For further diagnostics, click on the little 1-2-3 under MS A/V. Get the list of filters and codecs used to render the file (click on the -> arrows for the intermediate pins).

If you are unable to get into the folder at all, right-click it, and pick search. It will list your files. Then you can hover over each until you find the one that causes the problem, and proceed as mentioned above.

Hi everyone.

I received a link to a video entitled "Russian Guy touching 1000 Breasts". While the link opened, I closed the window but was watching a YouTube video at the same time. A pop-up came up for installing a YouTube and Flash update for the YouTube player, and I didn't think twice and clicked it assuming it was legitimate. Now I highly doubt it was. Every time I visit any site with Google Chrome the same warning message is displayed concerning the site allinfree.net, no matter what site has been visited. I have attached a sample screenshot as google_warning.jpg.

I searched online and found someone complaining of the same problem: https://community.mcafee.com/message/223287 However, detailed steps were not provided as to how to solve the problem.

I ran scans using Avira Free Antivirus, McAffee Stinger, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition to try and clean my computer, however the message was still coming up in Chrome.

I came across this site and was following instructions for posting concerning a Malware infection. I was able to get a DDS report however in the middle of scanning using GMER, my computer froze, crashed, and re-started. Now the computer runs extremely slowly, and every time I try to get a GMER log the same events happen. I have attached my DDS log (Attach.txt) and a HijackThis! log (hijackthis_log.txt) for support.

Hi Folks,

My computer has been taken over by a virus and I am now only able to visit certain websites that require a password to enter. (facebook, mobileme, banking, etc). Cannot browse general websites (google, msn, windows, etc.). This ocurred on Dec 31st about 2:11PM as I tried to install a program that scanned OK with Norton AV. I then downloaded Twister Anti-Trojan and scanned the file to find out that it was infected with Trojan.Agent.dsci.ynkb. I have tried the Windows Malware Removal and it didn't correct my problem. I cannot find any information about this trojan on the web. Norton AV did give me alerts after the fact stating that conhost.exe was blocked from download by hxxp://4kversions.biz/gsver/gsver.php?sft=master-keystroke-logger-10.11.01&idm=800023

I have unplugged my connection to the internet until I can resolve this.

I have scanned my computer and have attached the files as requested. Any assistance will be appreciated. PS - I am on a different CPU to enter in this request.

My computer has the preloaded restore information (windows) on the D: drive of this computer.

A:browsers crash when visiting dailymotion - ntdll.dll is the problem?

There could be a lot of things that are causing this, something that all the browsers would be using, Flash, Antivirus or other security software. But no, ntdll.dll is not the cause a lot of things use it because it is the system. So you will see it a lot in crash dumps.

(not sure if i put this in the correct section sorry)

Im with BT Broadband at the moment, earlier today there was a new update, im guessing for the router, so i downloaded it.

Since then i have been getting the above warning on certain sites i try to enter which i have been on before with no problems (for instance, the BBC website).

Is this just coincidence or did the update do this?
... and if so, does anyone know how i got about un-installing the update?

Thanks.

A:Auto redirect to unknown site when visiting Friendster

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

I have just checked out the site you refer to with both Firefox and IE with no problems.

I would suggest therefore that your IE may have been hijacked.

Go Here and follow the instructions.

OS = Windows 10, effects all browsers used (slimbrowser, slimjet, IE11, Firefox w/noscript running, Chrome, Opera, these are the only ones i tried)
 
When browsing to a website (typically seems to be stream2watch) but others randomly trigger a message that informs me to call my ISP to remove malware, and a fake blue screen error withing a browser windows behind that. This can only be terminated by ending the task within task manager. ALT+F4 does nothing, just sends it repeating.
 
I have Secure A Plus running along with Superantispyware, both have run a full scan and to no avail minus piddly tracking cookies in SAS. ADW cleaner also has been run after the fact. No repeat customer seem to appear.
 
I have a screen capture if you would like to see it, and hope to get this resolved, it gets very irritating. Thank you
