A while ago I got infected with this little gem, but eventually got the thing removed (OR SO I THOUGHT) using Malwarebytes, since then i have also ran Kaspersky malware/virus removal tool thingy and my computer came out clean.

So I am currently between Internet Protection Programs and have been trying out Trails.

Last night I tried to install a McCafe trail, but was informed that Incompatible software is interfering and the program will not be able to run as I want. The software interfering: Windows System Defender.....

I was surprised as I have not been affected by any weird wonderful malware issues, but I reinstalled Malwarebytes, updates and ran the program, it did find and removed some issues and I tried the Mcafe installation again, but it is still telling me that Windows System Defender is interfering.

I dont know what to do anymore. Please help!

I am moving this thread to the Am I Infected forum, where others more knowledgeable can take a closer look :thumbsup:.

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic344529.html you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
