I have a logo running in my taskbar called Secure Keyboard Service 5.0. I've found the running process called kdfmgr.exe but when I end it, it comes back.

What is this part of? Virtumonde?

Anyone know the best way to get rid of it?

Vundofix did not find anything but your log shows you are using an older version of Java. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malicious sites can use to exploit and infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) Version 6 and save it to your desktop.
  • Scroll down to where it says "Java Runtime Environment (JRE)6 Update 4...allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Select your Platform: "Windows".
  • Select your Language: "English".
  • Read the License Agreement, and then check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • Click Continue and the page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation and save the file to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove Programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check (highlight) any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u4-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.

Hi

kdfmgr.exe runs the anti-keylogger from Trend Micros Transaction Protector. You can find it mentioned on Trend's website. I'm pretty certain Secure Keyboard Service 5.0 is the same thing.

I have been using Transaction Protector for a while under Vista & IE7. I never used to get the Secure Keyboard Service 5.0 icon on the task bar but
I have recently reinstalled the O.S. and Trend Internet Security Pro and only after this has this icon begun to appear on the task bar when I'm running Transaction Protector.

When I terminate Trends anti-keylogger the secure keyboard 5.0 icon goes as well, so I'm as certain as I can be it is the same thing, but would like to confirm this if I can. Anyone any ideas?

Regards famgas
