Web pages not displaying - Trojan? - adclick?

  hansa 23:14 22 Apr 2007

Over the past couple of days some web pages will nor display, e.g. Staples.co.uk. Tab shows adclick (GIF Image, 1x1 pixels).
Same problem in FF. IE7 and Opera.
Any way to clear/clean this out?

Have you tried a scan for any virus or malware/spyware infections?

Should have mentioned - scanned with kasperksky, A2, Ad-aware and spyware doctor - all show no problems

Spybot Search and Destroy maybe click here
and superantispyware click here

Download and run things like Adaware SE click here, Spybot search and destroy click here and AVG antispyware click here

good evening. S&D - no threats found. Also noticed you mentioned super as in another thread so just trying that now.

Hi Strawballs,

already given ad-aware a shot but will try AVG AS

  hansa 17:59 23 Apr 2007

no result with avg.

Now discovered that if I copy/paste a link from a non responsive web page in to the address bar the site opens. Must be a simple explanation?

Can you post the links in question.

As this is happening in all your browsers,i would suspect its something to do with the AV or firewall

Just a thought,have you tried system restore to a time before this started.

  hansa 20:46 23 Apr 2007

Tried system restore - won't work!1 aaarghh!
think I'll go and lie down in a dark room
