  1. Hi

    I keep getting the following virus msqpdxquwbypbn.dll found alert the first time I run a browsing window for either firefox or IE. I have tried Avast and AVG 8 and 7.5 which both find the virus after the browsing session starts, but a full system scan before finds nothing.

    Whenever I complete a search in google and then click the link I want, a random page pops up with ads. If I close that page down and click the link again it works. I'm sure this is associated with the virus.

    I've cleared all cache, cookies and offline content. Any ideas?
