    I run TrendMirco Internet Security 2007. A few days ago, I was doing a Google search and one of the links I hit pulled up got an immediate popup from Trend Micro indicating that I was trying to access a dangerous website. It actually happened twice once for w1.madway.net/cgi.bin and then for master.madway.net/cgi.bin. I immediately closed Internet Explore, but Trend Micro responded that a change had been made to my startup file which I asked it to roll back. Within 15 mintues the dangerous website popups started again. I shutdown, rebooted, and did a scan. TrendMirco found no issues, so I loaded a new signature, and Trend Micro did not find anything again. The popups telling me I was trying to access these two dangerous websites continued, so I blocked access to the sites via TrendMicro and then called them. We tried a few things, and then they asked me to send them a HJT log. I did and they suggested some changes and I made them but the dangerous web site popups continue. Obviously they only happen when I am connected to the Internet. I am continuing to pursue this issue with them, but I have used your forums before and have had excellent response (I am a former CIO, so I don't drop those kinds of comments lightly) so I thought I would submit the problem to you as well.

    HJT log is attached.
    Best regards, Lois
