I've recently removed some adware that was sticking me with adrevolver banners from e-bannerx.com. However, when I login to hotmail on MSN via secure login I still get the "leaving secure connection" msg and it takes me to a mixed zone, instead of secure. Everything is fine and secure in firefox, figures, but I'd like to fix this for paranoia's sake. All suggestions welcome. Peace, D.

Please describe what steps to took to do the above.

I recommend doing such an un-intall while in SAFE Mode.
Then I'd navigate to C:\Program Files and remove by deleting any "remnants" of adrevolver or references to e-bannerx.com, including the entire folder.
For instance:
C:\Program Files\Folder that contained adrevolver <---- remove the "bolded" folder.

Now go to your IE - Tool - Internet Options - Security (tab) - Trusted Zone
Make sure e-bannerx.com or other references to adrevolver have not placed themselves in your Trusted Zone. If you find them there.........Remove them.

Best Regards

I've ran noadware, nuker, s&d, adaware, xoftspyse, avg free, cleared all cookies, cache, java cache, reset all web/privacy settings and replaced my hosts file. And to wrap it up, I reinstalled all web related applications on my box. That's what I did. Could it be that the banners displayed are not from a secure server, and that is why I'm getting this warning?

Can you access ANY "secure" sites?
:unsure:
Such as this one ?

Yes, I can visit that site. I already have an updated hosts file, too.
