Mod Edit: Split from http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic481908.html - Hamluis.

I'm getting the same thing. Also noting massive memory issue with explorer.exe. If I terminate explorer.exe the popular stop. Traditional malware fixes not picking anything up.

I am not sure if you are aware, but explore.exe and iexplore.exe are two different things. Explore.exe is windows itself and if you end that process you won't have a desktop...just a background pic. iexplorer.exe is IE and is the one that you should end with task manager if you get a popup. But when I get this particular popup, I don't have iexplore.exe in my task manager because I am not using that browser. So I am confused.

I am aware, and that's why I included since the popup isn't coming from IE. and seems to come fom explorer. What's your explorer memory usage running at?

Oh, I'm sorry. I initially thought it was coming from IE because I also get other popups that say they are from IE even when I'm not using it. Right now my explorer.exe is running at 225,272k. Pretty excessive yeah?

I think that when you click "ok" or close it, it turns it on or something so when I get the pop up, I just leave it if I am in the middle of something. If I'm not, then I just restart my computer. Mine started about 4 days ago also.

I've started a blog post to gather information on this particular malware. There does not appear to be much information about it at this time.

Anyone that finds anything out, please let me know.

Thanks!
