I was working on a friends computer that would not load Google.com among other sites.
I was thinking Browsersafeguard.exe might have had something to do with this as it sets itself up as a proxyserver, but may have been a corrupted DNS cache. The sight I visited Bleepingcomputer.com had this:
This did not sound at all malicious and I left in installed. The link you sent gives me some second thoughts.
I use HitmanPro.alert which protects any browser that I open up and you may want to install CryptoPrevent which is also referenced and linked in the article http://www.thewindowsclub.com/hitman...rt-review-free
I'd also seen that bleepingcomputer.com article as well so something didn't seem right, but I prefer to side on precaution.
