Virus Trojans problem

  Ex plorer 01 Sep 11

Hi after opening my email this morning one or two of my trusted sites I have used for years had links in them and when clicked on a McAfee warning was shown as below.

McAfee Secure search Whoa! Are you sure you want to go there? may try to steal your information. Why were you redirected to this page?

  • When we visited this site, we found it may be designed to trick you into submitting your financial or personal information to online scammers. This is a serious security threat which could lead to identity theft, financial losses or unauthorized use of your personal information

I ran a deep scan Ad-Aware and it found Trojan.Kryptik.laq v. now Deleted its the 3rd time I have had to deal with this in 3 searches.

Is there a tool to remove it I have looked on Google loads of options just hope there may be an easy way round this.

A Full McAfee scan found nothing.

Whilst looking through C Drive, I found in eBay Tool bar?. The only trace I have of ebay is in the Bing search tool as far as I know.

Still having problems with email.

OS Vista Full McAfee and Ad-Aware for protection.

If no luck on here maybe try the Malware removal forum as it looks like it could be difficult to remove.

Hi I successfully got rid of Trojan.Kryptik.laq v.

Ad-Aware could find it but after deleting and rebooting it came back.

Cutting a Long story short, I removed Opera with Revo and that took care of the Trojan.Kryptik.laq v.

I used Opera a while ago as FF was not responding very well and it must have crept onto my system then.

Trying to resolve the problem with email today as most links clicked on throws up

Switched off McAfee Safe Search and the problem is now cured, so I reckon it wasn't a virus just a problem in the Safe-Searh just been to sensitive.
