The attachment/file etc contained a virus and has been deleted

  onthelimit1 19:31 17 Sep 13

Vista PC. When I try to download an email attachment or an .exe file, I get the above message. ONLY in IE9 - not in Chrome. Tried resetting IE, but no change. Scanned for viruses with (the installed) Sopho and MBAM - all clear.

Google not a lot of help. Any ideas?

Sounds an awful lot like the 'The ZeroAccess trojan'

Does anything on this removal guide sound familiar click here

Thanks Lotvic. I keep forgetting how good Combofix has proved to be in the past. I'll let it run now........

Excellent - looks as though Combofix has come up trumps again. Will restart in the morning to confirm.

Still fine this morning. Must get the grey cells to remember Combofix!
