I found your thread titled "virus like activity but not virus." You wrote that you solved it yourself. Can you tell me how you solved it?
I'm having multiple problems.
Windows 2007 erradic behavior -- windows from other unopened programs popping up ie. Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 opened to the page where you set preferences for how spam is dealt with when I tried to open Outlook 2007.
Windows Installer 5:
Windows installer starting as soon as I try to open an Office 2007 program and sometimes in non-microsoft programs.
Sometimes, once it starts, it will NOT shut down until I reboot.
In Outlook 2007 it will run for 5-10 minutes and then bring up the program in Safe Mode only. I'm then unable to receive or send emails.
It started opening in Word & Excel when I clicked on clipart which it said wasn't installed and would I like to install. When I hit yes, it hung and wouldn't close.
It now randomly starts if I open Excel or Word and randomly on some other programs.
I'm unable to uninstall Office 2007 through Control Panel nor can I run a repair from from original Office 2007 installation CD.
I've spent three days trying innumerable suggested fixes from the internet for Installer 5.0, Windows 7, Office 2007, and Outlook 2007 to no avail.
Both Malwarebytes and Kaspersky say there are no viruses.
I ran sfc/scannow and got nothing.
