Question by katie5481: I think I have a virus that is blocking all the google sites, but I can’t seem to find it… Help!
Here’s the problem… I’ve been having trouble accessing certain websites. They’ve worked fine in the past. This is a recent thing. It seems to just be the google sites for now though Adaware won’t download a definitions update either. I did a yahoo search for viruses that block websites and the ones I found I tried to manually locate to no avail. I also checked my Hosts file and found no entries. I manually entered the IP address and google still wouldn’t come up. I checked blocked websites just in case and it was not there. I downloaded both Avira and AVG. This virus was found: [DETECTION] Contains code of the W32/Mabezat Windows virus.
The virus was quarantined but from what I read about it, it doesn’t necessarily cause website blocks. It seems pretty low risk actually.
This also came up, but upon a yahoo search, it seems that it is a file connected to the Mabezat: WORM/Agent.161175.
My most likely means of attaining this virus is through use of USB drives in a cyber.
Also, There have been two occasions when I used ad-aware and it’s found some internet explorer tracking cookies. I don’t use IE much and when I do I never access paypal (haven’t used it in years) though there was a cookie for that. Here are 3 examples of the cookies and they all have 112.207 as extensions:

Any idea what’s causing my problem with google sites, etc?
