    Malware Defense, IE8 hijacked to netslist.com and other sites

    I am using Toshiba laptop and suddenly it has started giving me pop ups about the Malware Defense and fake virus/Trojan notices. I have installed Symantec Antivirus (SAV) and it is not able to cure my laptop from such viruses as there are icon shortcuts to porn sites created on my desktop. Now when I am trying to remove this viruses from my laptop then it is not able to remove it but it can detect it without any problem. I have installed an Internet Explorer 8 and i have seen that it directly gets redirected netslist.com or luxe-software.net pages.

    I think an Internet explorer 8 which you have installed on your Toshiba laptop would have got corrupted and because of which it gets directly redirected to the some malicious website from where it keeps on running the malicious virus. It would have been better if you have mentioned the name of the virus which has been detected by your Symantec Antivirus. So that people can help you by providing the proper antivirus software which can successfully remove the detected viruses.

    I have provided you the link from where you can download the latest version of an Avast Anti Virus which is good antivirus software to protect your laptop. If you are using the Windows operating system on your laptop then it would be much better as this software has been found more successful on windows platforms. Anyway you have to just click on the name of an AVAST ANTIVIRUS to download it.

    I think your computer have got infected by the malicious scripts which is running behind an internet explorer browser which you are currently using on your system and as many time you run this explorer, there are more chances of your system to get hacked more. I suggest you to uninstall the version of an Internet Explorer 8 from your system and then reinstall it again. But make sure that you remove all the viruses from your system before installing an IE8 again on your system.

    I suggest you to always keep your Firewall Enabled as it is great security feature provided by all the operating system which checks for the each and every bit of data so that your computer does not gets even a single bit of malicious data. You may manually block the websites on which your IE gets redirected so that particular website does harm your system anymore.

    You may use some other browser for checking the same problem. but before that you must try the following.
    Start an Internet Explorer and then click on Tools and open an Internet Options where you have to go the an Advanced Tab. Here you have to click on Restore then Apply it. You may do one more thing that is from an Internet Options, Open Security Tab where you can click on reset all zones to default then press OK.
