    Visiting another forum I was on most of the day, I got the bogus flashes of popups claiming my system was infected. I was sitting idle for some time and I did not confirm anything. Apparantly this found its way right through and open door.

    Did a scan with eset, which detected:

    Name:
    C:\...\LocalSettings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\6VK94TC7\CO[1].php

    Threat:
    "a variant of Java/TrojanDownloader.OpenStream.NAZ trojan

    eset said it could not remove this and asked me to clean it, so I did. Although I could not find the file.
    This done, I also scrubbed the pc down with CyberScrub.

    Restarted to find that IE7 and Firefox would not render any site, even though network connections shown thru control panel said the the pc was connected. The connection symbol had dissappeared from the system tray.

    I then ran Malwarebytes which found the Trojan.FakeAlert that eset failed to find. I then removed it through the Malwarebytes panel.

    But now, both browser still will not connect/open any pages.
    I've seen a way to remove mailware right through IE panel, but can't seem to locate it.

    Am I doomed if its gone this far? At this time I feel I should at least thank Microsoft and eset. eset used to be better than it is, these are getting more frequent.

    note: I've found other "removal instructions" however these list files that haven't even been loaded on my pc, which makes me suspicious.
