I have read all of the other posts regarding this malware and have attempted to use those suggestions to remove this beast but so far without success.
dwq4do82y8xi7.cloudfront.net shows up as a cookie in CCleaner even after I have run it. This software is unable to delete it even when I try the manual removal that CCleaner provides. That method appears to delete it but then it simply reappears. I have also run the following:
Microsoft Safety Scanner
I ran scans with all four programs and no malware was reported by any of them.
I have Chrome, Firefox, and IE 11 installed, all without any extensions and I have reset all of them back to their initial defaults. The name Cloudfront does not appear in my app/program list nor is it installed as an extension in any of the browsers. After using the browsers to surf awhile I checked them for stored cookies. I have not found the Cloudfront cookie in any of the browsers caches.
I must also say that I have not seen any popup ads that are out of the ordinary nor any strange redirects. So, my question is: "Is my computer infected with this malware?" I ask specifically whether I am infected because the only evidence is the cookie that CCleaner reports and cannot delete.
