There is a virus that my Antivirus couldn't detect.
My Antivirus is "Kaspersky Internet Security 2009".
I got this virus from a file "PATCH-KASPERSKY.INTERNET.SECURITY.8.(2009).WORKING.KEYS.TILL.2011!.EXE".
What is happening is that whenever I try to open a folder or my Internet Explorer, I got the following message (check the attachment), and it tries to open the Internet Explorer.

This isn't a virus but some spyware crap.

Download adaware or spybot and let them check it.

Also, seeing that you got this bug from a file thats clearly a crack or keygen for Kaspersky, then its just right imho that the app you stole won't detect the junk that got installed with the crack.

Poetic Justice?

Karma's a bitch.

This past May, Webroot surveyed more than 600 IT decision-makers at medium-sized companies to see how these small businesses perceived new threats facing their organizations.  Read what Webroot CISO, Gary Hayslip, has to say about the survey in part 1 of this 2-part blog series.

Use Smitfraudfix or MBAM:
Download SmitfraudFix, and select Option 2. Clean (Safe mode recommended)

 Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop. check for Updates before scanning.

If problem persists, then show us a hijackthsi log.
Download Hijackthis:

Open Hijackthis, click "Do a system scan and save a logfile" don't fix anything yet.
Paste the log in the "Code Snippet" or "Attach File" window.

from my experience, as JanSchotsmans suggested,

http://www.safer-networking.org/nl/index.html (Spybot Search and Destroy)

is the best (free) anti-spyware tool.
