AmIBotted does not show any activity since the last one on 11-15. Does that mean whatever I had was removed?
Also, I just thought of something else. I have two computers *and* a Kindle Fire. Could the Kindle be the one that is botted? And if so, how do I check it. Obviously it's not running microsoft, so the malaware removal tool would not work.
I have also been getting the warning about Adware_Generic for a couple of weeks. In my Case I have the Norton Security Suite from Comcast installed and I have also run the MSRT which the message claims can find/remove this particular Trojan/Bot. None of these have found anything and in fact based on the time at which this was seen the particular computer has been totally rebuilt from the Mfgs. Distribution disks.
Now today when I try to use the XFINITY Am I Botted Service I'm getting the page not found error from multiple computers--So what gives?
Also, it would be really helpful if the email you receive from Comcast or the Am I Botted Website would provide additional information about how/when/where the Bot is being detected, minimally I would like the IP address that you saw accessed from my IP/Modem that makes you think I have a BOT.
What is also odd is if you store the address immediately above as a favorite, wait one minute and then click on the favorite the time at for when the BOT is last seen will change to the time at which you clicked on the favorite.

OP here. I'm still not sure what caused the alert, but according to AmIBot there has been no new 'bot' activity in my IP. I guess that's good news, but I'm unsure what caused it in the first place. And after I downloaded Constant Guard, Flash has been crashing causing Firefox to crash constantly.
