I get this window that pops up on startup then disappears. I read it could be trojan/malware/ect how do I fix it? I'm running Malwarebytes now, but others have said it didn't fix or even find the problem. So I'm here to see what you guys think.

Hi SuicideRUN,


Is that whole message that is in the pop-up window ? This message has been known to be associated with the presence of malware. You stated that you had run MBAM. Did you perform "quick scan" or did you do "full scan" ?


You could also try running http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx


This will show what executables are configured at startup and will show third party programs. You can look for unfamiliar programs and uncheck if they look suspicious and not associated with windows processes.


If the problem persists I strongly suggest you post in the appropriate forum.


Good Luck

Well I ran Malwarebytes full scan on safe mode and nothing. I tried posting this thread in the malware forum, but it's been remove or something cause it's not there now.

The other topic was deleted as a duplicate of this one. Also in that forum you need to post the required logs.

As asked above..
