I now have a problem with some malware of some type on my home computer.
When I type certain letters on my keyboard, window boxes will start to appear for no reason. (i.e.-My Computer, My documents, speech recognition program, find, etc. type pop-up boxes) I have scanned for viruses, registry changes, malware, etc with nothing showing up in the scans. (Other than cookie deletions, normal spyware, etc.)
When I first encountered this problem I was running the following:
Grisoft's, AVG 7.5 Free edition with daily update, scanned daily
Check Point's, ZoneAlarm Firewall
MaxSecureSoftware's, Max Registry Cleaner with daily update and scanned daily.
Ad-Aware 2007 with daily updates. I ran this program 3-4 times per week.
After I noticed the infection/problem, I installed other Ad-Adware type programs to see if I could fix the problem. I installed AVG Anti-Spyware, CCleaner, Spy-Bot Search and Destroy, and Stopzilla. I updated and scanned with all these programs. These scans turned up nothing.
I can go into the Task Manager and stop the process on "MDM.exe" and it will stop the problem from happening for a little while. I even went in and disabled the MDM from engaging at start up thinking that would solve the problem. Wrong! LOL The Keyboard hijacking problem still exists.
Windows XP Service Pack 2
Firefox as my Browser
Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your help.
