hi all

My client is using kaspersky (v6? for workstations)

every time he opens ie8 he gets a message telling him the application is showing signs of being a virus of type 'invader' skip, deny or terminate...

started happening this morning..

we have run a kaspersky scan, it picked up a couple of things,... then a malware bytes scan picked up some more, then a 'superantispyware' scan picked up a couple more again....

but still the same message appears...

here is some more detailed description:

Process C:\windows\system32\svchost.exe (PID: 1944) is attempting to invave process C:\program files\internet explorer\iexplre.exe (PID: 6056).  This behaviour is typical of some malware.

Any ideas what to do next?

    I always start with a "rogue process" stopper before doing scans - and I always do the scans in "Normal Mode" (not "Safe Mode").

    iexplre.exe <<-- is that a typo of iexplore.exe?

    Can we also look at the Kaspersky log that the scan generated?
    All the generated logs from Mbam, SAS and Kaspersky if possible.
