you saying that this is not a threat? My scanning priorities are on high, but I'm not experiencing application lag, I just want to know if my computer is safe. I had browsed that forum before posting here ! :)

It could be a false alarm

I couldn't open the link that you provided. Check your System with these tools and let us know how you get on.

If you find anything with these tools, turn off System Restore and run them again in Safe Mode

Download Spybot - Search & Destroy and install it. Update it.

Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, install it and update it.

<a href="" target="_blank"><u>Malwarebytes</u></a>

* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
* At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.

If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.

I would keep scanning with it until it is clean by closing out and rebooting and running it again.

Of course you are loading drivers

by Jacky Howe In reply to Malwarebytes Problem

Temporarily disable kaspersky until you have installed the software.

Please navigate to the system tray on the bottom right hand corner and look for a sign.
?right click it-> select Pause Protection.
?click on -> By User Request
?a popup will claim that protection is now disabled and a sign like this: will now be shown.

Ran spybot

by stankmaster In reply to It could be a false alarm

I ran spybot and it says I'm in the clear, I'm pretty sure kaspersky just blocked some nasty script from a page I had been viewing. Thanks for the help!
