I believe I have some form of malware running on my computer which appears to have gotten through the Avast and Malwarebytes anti-virus defense software I have running. I first noticed this about a two weeks ago: 1) incessant Avast! pop-up notifications that various "threats" had been blocked 2) sporadic, sometimes frequent, interruptions in connectivity to internet explorer 3) random impairments to windows media pictures library database 4) a general sluggishness in the computer's operations responsiveness I have run daily full and boot-time scans with Avast, and daily scans with Malwarebytes. On some days the scans report no harmful objects found. On the two or so occasions when Avast did report a corrupted file, it quarantined the file. A follow up scan would be negative, but then a subsequent scan might show a positive. At various times Avast pop-ups appear to go into complete remission. But, so far, they then returned.

Often the same pop up would repeat itself incessantly. The most frequent "objects" to appear in the notification were: URL hxxp://7508.sindelclick.com/?p=8R5uCRhHJ6yEyubWtMfITzR3Yh8%2FPJURAaKd4hmHjRxTa3JYqX8At3mmI8GRzQg6PDYVSFNrBKvtLAzqvqyGuli%2Fbs%2BZn9SxK7BG1jVvhadr4c8t7hxm7ijd2pKhtVnQYMXQy1vIRnYJzpRbge5rv5pk0y9PSJLGF7ow4oREWvF4kTtF%2FLRze%2BVwv1xQsrkZs4JFhdZvml%2FJU2rPB7YHcRlTedxt3Dj6qEadkkKY3MMTaLv%2BIKVQu6zkAXh838Scu567oV5vogX%2FcGgrnqNbvWpvDConBX%2BM3eXv1Zd5Q5jrVPXOdbByWIYGdH%2F%2BLuATTHfrMK4Lgzz02AGU0Ad9HvnjaF1U7BMvE9ZGU%2F%2B6uBoa7zxNNNi75NQgd5MA%2FobxwCmFidXBVr5O5Pd3svuzbeo1EKl%2FLBmt%2FSdu0YAu9%2F4qpCrQGqG2HEVjRioVI5tJr3abbnV6X0PSj%2FHYTXaazRUrdZ6VJTFABrlDfGCohKBEiKOAcy9fUKUMps92OBbs2GowDP2dye%2FjwbLiSM7SwHPMsKbHieldEd3FgJzNuMJQeYlQ2LXSkyLk39elSlHmS67x1rPFo9s85jYXYZpD7l7WmCT5NVfscEVzki3zAkI%3D Infection URL:Mal * URL hxxp://go.wvydeo.com/resultsa/?x=0&qs=IhwIAhVYFXFbUBcaEhVbXQxHFURmDQxGXlEVcVgGVA8VGg0AHGhFHGZeWElfVwYxFxMXREJSCAhTEBYSZF5LFwkKHTAdHxYaDEFYXhIHU0AnDFBAQlUQdVlbVB0CSVlBXhEQEmNPAxJRVQ51XlNGTlYZG1JeDxERYlpdVg8VHXVAUkdJQEQVX0AVERFjWRFFXEsQdV5TQgVAWllfXhERXWNHXUBcVRA5Xk1CSUBDURNYEQ8RY1ldQBBUDnVeU0JJDERHX14QEhF1AgpNXUhVNkgAGx1NR1ldXxIVBz8ACU1UVRByVldFXxQbBA4HTxxXOg0IHx8JQTVAAB0UVgUdUl8VEBVkUVtCX1EGLhleABYeUgoEGRwHUzYPKU0EEVQ1S1ATXEISTF0IVU5SNggfEwRLQiwURQcYIEk-BgBFTlYgTF9AW0AXJicmV04TRVhJH0lOUidUDhxUSEk1Q1JCVEFZWEJfExkHIQcGTV1DUCQcFxwcAh0NUl8QFRRjX0sRHBVJIVNRQklAQF9cSFJUQzoNUB4DC0VjBxNPQEhaW15WDxMTakdfRFhDRSsaEQtEFxUbDAdPSEBzCgwdDgpHLA9DABwGHQwYHQdUUz9UBQQYFQV2D0ZAH1VGDxdAUlVAPhkIFAkIRSEHAlwXFQBMXQhCBBM1OB4GIxN3dQUgV0oWF0cOCEdITToIGRVJVkRzW1VKTklDUUpcF0IPIAYYAg8ABXYKVUdPSENQWFYEExcwRw4RARVBLAkNV0oUQlxZVhYYFms2WEdZXBN3MVBCS0FHXTBfEBUUY18yQlxVEHFYUC0XHxoM Infection URL:Mal * URL hxxp://cdn1.movieroomreviews.com/themes/movieroomreviews/images/ajax_movie_pic_back.png Infection URL:Mal Thank you.
