Hey guys, hopefully you can help me out here. I somehow came down with a virus that shut down my task mgr and also installed some fake program/deal that says Danger in a little balloon on my taskbar (something stating windows security alert to download, etc). Also tried to install a 'digital promotion' program.

I have got my task mgr back thanks to a google search, and was able to find the program name as "asrkvn_pku.exe'. However, my malwarebytes anti malware will find the trojan but can't get rid of it. I also have McAfee, but that program seems to be bleep.

Any suggestions? I also have HijackThis installed and can run a log if anyone can help me break all that jargon down.

Thanks to all!!!

Download this file and save it to your desktop:


Double-click the file to run it. A command window will open briefly. Then run a quick scan with Malwarebytes. Post the Malwarebytes log.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
