Windows 7 x64


I don't think this is a malware, virus, etc.

I did encountered this type of pop-up every now and then.
This is something to do with "permission" approved for this "XXX.".
I forgot how i managed to remove this "XXX" which may be inside the registry, i forgot.
ADDED: Sorry, my case is not the same as yours, but in similar way as not able to kill it, so rename "XXX" to avoid confusion.

No matter how you can remove it on this session, and when reboot, it will re-appear again.

Let me think if i still can remember or not.

At this moment, you can forget to use antivirus & others such removal tool.

For to re-do again, go and clear all history, cache, etc.

Get a program to monitor how the system on execution.
This utilities tools are written by MS staff.

Windows Sysinternals

Almost all the programs do not require to install.
They are standalone.

Process Monitor = this will take note on any application &or programs that start to run.

After all, it is written by MS staff, and could be used under Windows.

Windows 7 x64

After you seen this appear, do it affect you computer.

I would say no, hence it is not malware &or virus, that is why it cannot be killed.

While you are in the Sysinternal website, some to these tools are quite handy.
So, just try some of it, after you resolve this issue.
Or you can see any other tools which also be helpful.

Refer to: Process Explorer + VirusTotal (to check all processes with 50+ AV's)

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Yeah thanks for that. I haven't had a single pop up all day so I'm hoping that it's cured. I can only assume that the Trojan that was rempoved last night by Hitman Pro might have had something to do with it.
