Windows 7: Redirected to url4short.info when trying to visit a certain site

That's strange...

That notice is one you get for using FireFox.
Try running ESET in Firefox, and see what happens.

I think ESET may have updated their site. I decided to check again in IE to see if that message appeared, and when I clicked the link cottonball provided, I got sent here.

ESET Free Online Scanner :: Complete Malware Detection :: ESET

When I click to run the online scanner in IE, it doesn't tell me I'm trying to run it in a different browser. Shall I go ahead now?

When prompted, do I click run or save? Or does it not matter?

I started the scan, but aborted it when it detected files relating to an Ask toolbar. I use Avira Free Antivirus which comes with an option to install the Ask toolbar to get free web protection. I don't know if these files are part of Avira or something else, but I decided to abort the scan in case it removed files that might cause Avira to stop working properly. Should I restart the scan without setting it to remove found threats?

My apology for the delay. Got a bad cold.

Yes, please. Run the scan and uncheck the option to remove all threats.

Once you post its log, we can determine what entries need to go.

No worries. Hope you feel better soon. This is what ESET found.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Avira\AntiVir Desktop\apnic.dll a variant of Win32/Bundled.Toolbar.Ask application
C:\Program Files (x86)\Avira\AntiVir Desktop\apntoolbarinstaller.exe a variant of Win32/Bundled.Toolbar.Ask application

The Ask Toolbar is considered a nuisance. It hijacks the browser homepage and replaces the default search engine. However, it is up to you whether you want to keep it or not.

If you uninstall this component, Web Protection will be no longer available for Avira Free Antivirus.

I didn't choose to install the toolbar when installing Avira, so I've never had the free web protection. My home page and search engines are the same as they've always been.
