Windows 7: Suspicious Site on Facebook...possible spyware/malware?

Suspicious Site on Facebook...possible spyware/malware?

I was on facebook and was scrolling through my news feed when I saw something saying ""I can't believe a girl did this because of Justin Beiber" with the URL. Being that I disliked the guy anyway, I was curious and bored.

(click at your own risk since I do not know if it is malicious or not, but i do not recognize the domain link .info): justinbgirl.info

there was another URL when i entered it in the search field on Facebook: crazyjustin.info as part of a second post relating to it.

When I stupidly clicked on the link of the first one, it took me to a page (i took a screenshot in the attached file). I couldn't navigate anywhere and seemed like nothing happened. No antivirus alerts, nothing out of the ordinary. My laptop did not act up or anything either. I checked my task manager for suspicious programs but nothing registered as anything malicious.

I scanned my laptop and my scanner found nothing.

Now I am worried I am infected with spyware and I have no clue where to turn to or what to do to check to see if I even have it in the first place.

Stupidity is a very expensive luxury. Anyways, scan like theres no tomorrow. Use MBAM, SAS and the resident AV.

Dont access critical sites like your bank and cc, until you are certain the computer's clean. Watch out for wierd behavior. Go to task manager and check for any suspicious names, google for them.

If you're paranoid or lazy, just restore windows from a previously created image, if theres one.

Some people would advise a reinstall, but that should only be the last resort.

Microsoft Security Essentials and MBAM found nothing. Now running SAS. So far it found adware tracking cookies but it's most likely from forums and other places I visit frequently.

I've googled the names so far and again, nothing suspicious.

But what would count as weird behavior? And silly question, but restore windows = system restore right? Just want to get that clear.

It mentioned Justin Beiber....
So if you pc starts to sing baby or act like a pre-Madana it may have caught beiber fever.

If that is the case the only solution is to take her out back and shoot her...( the computer that is)

what worries me is the .info domain. I've never seen any website like that in my life.

Wierd behaviour means random windows popping up, ie pages being redirected, computer becoming sluggish, mouse clicks going waywire......

By restore, I meant, if you used a backup program like windows backup or Acronis or macrium etc. and have a clean image tucked away, you can just hook it up and bring back windows to the state in which it was imaged. In other words, you'll have a clean computer again.

And, no, I did not mean" system restore". System restore can create copies of the infected files. And some viruses can infect the restore volume as well as the actual system files. When somebody cleans their computer using an antivirus, then uses System restore, they may actually reinfect the computer.

And dont worry, .info is an authorized domain name.

.info - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I gotcha.

Well, I've been experiencing none of that so far....if that's the case then what could those websites possibly be online for? You see the screenshot I took, I dunno....something just doesn't strike me as normal..Foutube? Not being able to click on anything?...unless I'm paranoid and it's nothing

it means exactly what it says info (as in information) they are alot cheaper $1.99 USD compared to $9.99 USD (on sale)

The site you accessed is more than likely a 16 year old script kitty who thinks they are amazing hackers...

Whois Lookup - Domain Names Search, Registration, & Availability | Whois.net is the whois info
Should I be worried though?
