Windows 7: How does this not get detected ?

How does this not get detected ?

So I've had this thing take over my browser(IE8) a few times now, a couple on DeviantArt and earlier when I went to check my mail on Yahoo.
First it minimizes the page and I get the first window below, so I click the close button and I instantly get the second window that starts scanning so I close that one and then I get the third window which will close when I click the close button.
I'm running MSE updated almost daily, Windows Firewall, SpywareBlaster and I've Updated and Scanned with MalwareBytes Anti-Malware.
I actually did full scans with MSE, SpywareBlaster and MBAM while the third window below was still on the screen.
None of them detected anything.
So is this something I can prevent or is it already in my system and I need to do something remove it?
Also I don't know if this helps but I also have Secunia PSI and WinPatrol installed.

Thanks, Derek


P.S. UAC is also set to recommended level

try a-squad free,Avira anti root kit and hitman pro 3.5
also if you can find where it is on the hard drive and use the unlock and delete function in mbam.

hope this helps.

Thanks stillfreefilms, I ran hitman and that didn't find anything but asquared found 3, I didn't try Avira yet.
I uninstalled hitman 3.5, but I was going to keep the asquared, is there any conflict with that and the rest of the stuff I mentioned above?

hi !

glad to hear that a-squared (a2) found something, its very good at detecting & has recieved a lot of awards.
the fullversion of a2 with realtime-protection also uses very little memory:

a-squared works fine together with other Antivirus-programs.
but exactly which programs (that uses realtime-protection) do you have installed other than MSE ?

You might want to look at this:
MalwareURL

Malwarebyte's should take care of it:

download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop
|MG| Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.44 Download
* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
* At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.

EEPS ... I lost every thing in my post, so here goes again:

Clear your DNS cache ... You will need to run as Administrator
Open a command prompt....from the Start menu, select Run > In the box/"open field", enter cmd.exe
Copy/paste ipconfig /flushdns press 'enter'

Next,

Download the HostsXpert 4.3 - Hosts File Manager.
  • Unzip HostsXpert 4.3 - Hosts File Manager to a convenient folder such as C:\HostsXpert
  • Click HostsXpert.exe to Run HostsXpert 4.3 - Hosts File Manager from its new home
  • Click "Make Hosts Writable?" in the upper right corner (If available).
  • Click Restore Microsoft's Hosts file and then click OK.
  • Click the X to exit the program.
  • Note: If you were using a custom Hosts file you will need to replace any of those entries yourself.

You are running SpywareBlaster ... update it, then click "enable all protection".

Thanks Jacee, I already have MBAM. I forgot about MBAM finding a couple things last month and I quarantined them instead of deleting them, I guess thats what asquared found. I deleted them and after scans by both they are gone.
So thanks everybody for your help.
