    Malware, Virus on every off-site link clicked -- anyone else?

    Heads up.

    Just in the past two days I've noticed that, with each and every link I click on within DefensiveCarry that heads to some other site, my anti-virus/malware software pops up a blocked Malware item upon reaching that other site. Happens whether it's heading to YouTube, senate.gov, Popvox, Yahoo News, Bud's Gun Shop, Flickr or any of a dozen other sites people's posts link to.

    Anyone else noticing this sort of thing?

    NOTE: Am rooting around on my own system with various "scrubbers," in the event it's just my own system. Though, if not just me, then perhaps it's something with DefensiveCarry. Heads up.

    Moderators: PM me for details, if you need specifics of my setup and exactly what I'm seeing.

    I just clicked on 5 or 6 assorted links and I am not showing anything after a virus scan and malware run.

    I've noticed it's mostly on links that Snub44 has posted.


    Seriously, though, I've done a variety of scans on my own box and browser, but nothing has been found yet. Strange, sudden behavior. Typical of an infection of some sort on one's own machine. Doesn't appear to be anything on my box (though, ya never know), other than apparently it being only me who's seeing this sort of thing. Hasn't been anything recently installed. No strange rootkits or other uglies, seemingly. Hm.

    No issues here either at all. I'm running Norton 360 with no problems

    No issues... I have seen some weird stuff if you use the yahoo tool bar. But nothing here... I use Pale Moon as my browser and never see ads anywhere anyway. In fact I was surprised on a few forums that they had ads because I never see them... ever... Pale Moon and Adblock Plus are the only way to go...

    No problems with either of my computers.

    ccw9mm - How many anti virus programs do you have on your PC? If several, uninstall them all and install Microsoft Security Essentials and run that. You only need one anti malware/virus and MSE is usually sufficient. If you're still having problems, download the free version of Malwarebytes and run that with your PC in safe mode. That should clear up whatever you have on your system.
