Windows 7: Malicious URL Dilemma

Malicious URL Dilemma

Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 successfully blocked a malicious URL.


My concern is that within seconds IE9 crashed. Within 2 minutes I attempted a scan with Kaspersky and the scan was almost frozen. Scan was very, very slow. I aborted the scan.

A subsequent scan about 10 minutes later with Kasperksy and Malwarebytes was negative.

Any further steps to take to insure my system was not infected ? Seems to be normal since incident. I just felt the IE9 crash and slow scan were significant. Thanks !

Re-boot and re-run Malwarebytes in safe mode.

Dar torre,
After you download and run MBAM as advised by zigzag, kindly download spybot S(search)& D(destroy) from here ,update and run: The home of Spybot-S&D! Do not forget to download the Tea-Timer !

MBAM, in my view is a real asset to have! Kindly update it daily and run it after you download OR visit new websites.

One more recommendation would be to download the SuperAntiSpyware Portable Scanner and just run it to detect any Malware,missed by MBAM. Site to download the Scanner: SUPERAntiSpyware.com - SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scanner

regards,
sree

Thanks for your replies. I forgot to state I did run 2 other subsequent scans with KIS and MBs. I will try the SAS and SpyBot.

But would you both agree, that with the IE9 crash and initial slow scan by KIS there is a possibility of an infection ?

Malwarebytes and Safe mode

zig - You are certainly a knowledgeable and respected poster, but running MB in safe mode is questionable ? Thanks !

The option to run MBAM in "safe mode' is a well accepted method, when you cannot boot to screen normally due to malware. Another problem,"may" be that a log file is not generated when you run it in "safe Mode" OR safe mode with networking".

Since we both "have'considered infection, we have advised you to run the above security apps!

Kindly read this article : Removing Rogue Viruses or Malware Using Malwarebytes Safe Mode Scanner

It's also not advisable to run Tea Timer on Windows 7 if you already have an active AV and/or UAC enabled. Spybot S&D is still in beta and has been since the release of Windows 7. I use it but only to keep my hosts file up to date. It can't even find all the cookies in Windows 7.

The old "non" beta gets stuck in an endless loop that adds folder under folder until it is past the point where path can read it.

Yes, I just read some reviews on SpyBot before considering download which mirror the above comments.

I did download SAS but it would not update. Could be my VPN. May try later.

Thanks for the replies.

Dear torre,
The SAS Portable scanner comes with the latest updates. All you have to do is "just run it"!
