Hey..
Here was my original post - http://www.geekstogo...er-t275722.html

I am a member of a GPT (get paid to) site where users complete 'offers' and get paid. Not too long ago certain offers wouldn't load (ones that worked fine previously), but they load fine for others and they load fine on the other two computers on this network, making me think there is something up with my computer specifically.

After I noticed this I ran a MalwareBytes scan which picked up a couple things called Ad.Hijacker or something (I should've kept note of this), cleared it, but the problem still remains. My original post above illustrates that there isn't any malware on my computer (at least that can be detected).

Here are some examples of the URLs that won't load:
(I've edited part of the URL so that the advertisers don't think I'm spamming them)
http://www.[WEBSITE].com/?lp=106&a=303&aid=27076-85102T17cdc047d5c5ffd
http://m.gshiwmp.com...&...amp;p=0&s1=[USERAME]
http://www.lawcareer...com/?camp=CD925.[USERNAME]&group=1092&keywords=online+law+course&keyword=online+law+course&referrer=Bardon1&type=TYPE1269&wp=F

It does this with pages with lots of php code in the URL, I wonder if that has anything to do with it?
This happens in IE, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, etc so it isn't browser-specific.

Another question is, is it possible that if I did have malware previously, could it have changed a setting that remained changed even after being removed?

I am clueless, hopefully someone can help out. :)

Yes, when malware is removed it does not necessarily rectify all errors caused by the infection, in particular changes made to the Windows Registry which is a fundamental component of the operating system.

Now, at this point you should be aware that members are not allowed to give malware-removal advice on any of the general Windows forums. Only the malware team are allowed to deal with such problems.

You should post on the malware forum before proceeding any further on your own. They will advise you on what anti-malware software to run (HijackThis is no longer recommended by the malware team) and they'll ask you to post logs generated by the anti-malware software. Please be patient after posting, the malware team are usually very busy (sign of the times) but they will respond to all posts.

I already posted in that forum (that's the post that I linked to), and after having me post a few logs the person helping me out there told me to post here.
