Sounds like AVG has a glitch, I have not used that one for many a year so I do not know if it has a repair option ............ OK found it

To repair your AVG:
1. Go to Start -> (Settings) -> Control Panel.
2. Open (Programs) -> Programs and Features, or Add or Remove Programs.
3. Select AVG in the list of programs.
4. Click the Change or Change/Remove button.
5. Select Repair.
6. Follow the instructions on your screen to complete the installation.
7. Restart your computer.

Let me know if that cures it :)

Java scripts are still an avenue for malware although if Java itself is uninstalled/disabled then the risk is reduced markedly

OK Thanks, will check that. (sorry I was refreshing page 2 here hehe)

Now... MBAM quick scan found some PUPs: OpenCandy, traces of the never disappearing Iminent and Tarma installer. Should I keep something (Tarma, isn't that normal?)

Alright it's done now. I'll try a long scan later I guess.

AVG seems fine, though now i'm considering Avast, well... not just because you said so ;) I keep reading good things about it though but I thought it seemed too big... well it was a big dl to begin with. I'll probably give it a try.

Ok well... thank you a ton. I think that's pretty much it for now. I've read (I think it's propably in the forums here even) about a way to redirect some cookies to 127.0.0.1 using host lists. I didn't totally get it :lol: but I think I'll give that a try as well.

Thank you very very much again.

No real need for a host file programme as IE10 copes very well with that http://windows.micro...dwide-languages

If you decide on Avast wait until the next version gets released (we are just completing the beta now) that will be downloaded by a stub installer so you will only get the files needed not the whole kit and caboodle :)

There is no real difference between a quick scan and normal scan with MBAM
