Not entirely sure if this is an infection or if this message is phony or not...
I pretty much never turn off my computer, and inconsistently, for the past month or so, this fake message is hanging out when I wake up in the morning:
The message window also flickers in and out, which doesn't help support its authenticity. I am "protected" by the latest version of Kaspersky Total Security. I ran the usual starting with RKIll, followed by JRT, ADWcleaner, MBAM, Super AntiSpyware, ...CCleaner....ESET online scanner....I think that's all. Nothing really too alarming showed up, but that was about a month ago when I first received the phony message. The next time it comes up, I'll send over some more detailed info as well as logs, but right now, I just wanted to get it out there as I have found pretty much nothing on The Googles.
My primary concern is the behavior - it seems to wait until my computer is idle for a specific amount of time, suggesting that my machine is and has been infected for some time. Further, to my knowledge, this is similar to the way many Ransomware infections work.
I do have several local backups as well as several off site and cloud backups - but still...I dont like the idea that I am infected!
