Warning message with bad English - orgin / cause?

I'm working on a system that comes up with error messages.  The window has a title:
"Your System is Unstable"
the message is:
"A problem has been detected and Windows has been shutdown buggy application to prevent damage to your computer"
Kernel3264.sys - Address.... (etc.)
Kernel Debugger Using Port: COM1 ..........

I'm also seeing a popup that want to download SaliarARScanner - which seems not good.

Hi,
I suspect an infection may be hiding here. Do me a favor and rename HijackThis. Name it anything you like, like Findvundo.exe, just keep the .exe part. Re-run it and post the log.

Thanks

Just FYI, the system is also popping up with this at boot:

"Important - Errors found in the system"

During the scan of files which are start [sic] automatically at computer startup, a critical errors in system registry were found.

0x01ff0010 irql: 1fSYSVER 0xbf04014
NT_Kernel error 1276 (EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED)

[OK]

Note the bad English on this one too.

Also, as I type this, the keystrokes aren't reliably captured in this form.

Download and Run ComboFix (by sUBs) You must run it directly from your Desktop.

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe

Disable your Anti-virus and any real-time Anti-spyware monitors that are running.
Then double click Combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
When finished, it will produce a log for you. Upload that log in your next reply with a new HijackThis log.  

Please do not post the log into the comment window. Use "Attach File" under the comment window to post the log.

Note 1: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall.
Note 2: Remember to re-enable your Anti-virus and Anti-spyware.

NOTE: If you have issues connecting to your network or internet after running combofix you can either simply reboot, or do the following:
* Going to Control Panel > Network Connections.
* Right click on their Network icons & select "Repair"
or
Alternately, if the Network icon appears in the notification area in the lower right corner of Desktop, right-click it, and then click Repair from the shortcut menu.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE: Combofix will typically fix most and sometimes all Malware entries but many times a script is also needed to finish cleaning up. So please keep CF until advised whether you need the script or not.

OK - well I hesitate to use Combofix because of the warning that 1% fail.  This is a "production" system - so I need to check with the owner first.

IndiGenusCommented:
Have you tried Vundofix on this one? Less risk than CF. One thing to note though that removing Malware is always a risk to some point. Good backups of any files and data are critical.

Download VundoFix.exe to your desktop.

Also, if you want a risk free tool, try WinPFind.exe, it will not remove any files unless we want it too during the second run.
This tool will just scan the system and output a result of what's running etc.
We then read the result, and pick the bad files to be removed using WinPFind script function.

Download WinPFind3U.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named WinPFind3u on your desktop.
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/oldtimer/winpfind3u.exe

Open the WinPFind3u folder and double-click on WinPFind3U.exe to start the program.
* In the 'Files Created Within' group click 30 days
* In the 'Files Modified Within' group select 30 days
* In the 'File String Search' group select Non-Microsoft

WinPFind didn't find vundo files either.

Start WinPFind3U. Copy/Paste the information in the Quotebox below into the pane where it says "Paste fix here" and then click the Run Fix button.
When the fix is completed a message box will popup telling you that it is finished. CLick the Ok button and Notepad will open with a log of actions taken during the fix.

Afterwards, you might like to do an online scan with Kaspersky perhaps.
Using Internet Explorer, run Kaspersky Online Scanner
http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner
   
* Click 'Accept' in the window that pops up.
* You will be prompted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click on the information bar and select Install ActiveX Control if so. This may happen more than once. That is OK. You also may get a warning from your Windows Firewall. You can tell it to unblock.
* The program will launch and then start to download the latest definition files.
* Once the scanner is installed and the definitions downloaded, click 'Next'.
* Now click on 'Scan Settings'
* In the scan settings make sure that the following are selected:
          o Scan using the following Anti-Virus database: 'Extended' (If available, otherwise 'Standard')
          o Scan Options: 'Scan Archives' and 'Scan Mail Bases'
* Click 'OK'
* Now under 'Select a target to scan' select 'My Computer'
* The scan will take a while, so be patient and let it run. Once the scan is complete, it will display whether your system has been infected.
* Now click on the 'Save Report As...' button:
* Make sure it says Save as a text file - change it if not
* Save the file to your desktop and attach the logfile here please.

In the end our cleanup efforts worked and we didn't ever run Combofix on this production system.
