Internet redirect to download xxxtoolbar opens every ten minutes...
Posted on 2004-09-19
When I opened up Internet Explorer this morning, I was immediately redirected to IP address which displayed a Security Warning popup saying:
'Do you want to install and run "You must be 18 or older to access Free Porn with XXXToolbar. By clicking Yes you are agreeing to the terms and conditions" signed on 7/22/2004 11:18 PM and distributed by
Integrated Search Technologies
Publisher authenticity verified by Thawte Code Signing CA
Caution: Integrated Search Technologies asserts that this content is safe. You should only install/view this content if you trust Integrated Search Technologies to make that assertion.'
From that point on, Internet Explorer has sytematically been redirecting me to the same address every ten minutes, at 1:03, 1:13, 1:23, etc. Even if Internet Explorer is not open at the time, a new browser window will open and attempt to access the website. Only if the network connection is severed do the attempts stop.
I checked for spyware/viruses using Norton Anti-Virus and found nothing. I deleted all my cookies, to no avail. I then downloaded Giant Anti-Spyware, Adaware and Spybot and ran all three. Although each of them did find and delete some suspicious files, the problem persists.
Can anyone help?
