My guest account starts to act strange since yesterday. a pop-up appears every time the guest account is used. Together with this pop-up is a "pig-like sound" like that of Kaspersky. I have performed a scan using AVG 8 Free Edition but it was not able to find any threat so is my Malwarebyte's Antimalware.

Using Task Manager, I learned that it registers as "Windows Security Suite". I searched it using Google and it lead me back "home" (here at Bleeping Computer). :huh:

I was just wondering why Malwarebyte's didn't find any threat. :thumbsup:
I performed a scan using the Admin account. Would this make any difference?

Thanks in advance. . .
