    Default "" and spybot URL spoofing warning...please help

    I get a spybot popup box warning on almost every google search I do. It says "Possibly malicious URL or cookie detected!" That warning box looks legitimate, but I have no clue.

    It gives the location as http/ (then fill in the blank on the description)

    It then states "Identified as: Possible URL Spoofing (Unicode)".

    Some fake web protection service called "dys dyn", or something to that effect, then occasionally pops up to block a website.

    Hello Anthony1963,

    In case you missed it please see the FAQ which also includes guidelines for this forum and instructions in post #2 on how to provide the preliminary DDS and aswMBR logs used for analysis.

    Then start a new topic providing the DDS and aswMBR logs as shown in that sticky with a link back to this thread and a volunteer analyst will advise you when available.

    Best regards.
