I turned on my computer this morning and Kaspersky had a little pop up box saying something about PDM Key Logger has been detected on my computer. Then the box goes poof and I can't seem to find any info on it when I pull up Kaspersky.
I googled and have found quite a bit of information. The problem with that information is that it never seems to make sense to me what they're saying or what to do to fix the problem.
Is anyone familiar with this issue? If so, please help.
No idea, I know nothing about Kaspersky. You asked for suggestions of other trusted programs right?
It also seems like either Kapersky is not able to find the problem, or that the problem has somehow infected Kapersky right? In either case, an alternate program may help.

I found where Kaspersky logged it as being suspicious. Saying it detected 'legal software that can be used by criminals for damaging your computer or personal data PDM.keylogger'
Object - Kernel mode memory patch Criticality - Medium
So, that indicates that it found it and is aware of it..right? Not that it's "infected" by it.
It gives me the option of "Quarantine" but I have no clue what to quarantine out of all my files.
Bare with me folks! Clueless.
If it logs it along with others that it's listed as suspicious (malicious URL's) and also a few others that it's catagorized as Infected (Trojan programs & virus Heur:Trojan Script.Generic) does that mean it's "handled" them? There's a "Disinfect all" option next to the "Quarantine" option, but it's not highlighted.
A general method for removing viruses/other junk:
1. Download HijackThis (Link) 2. Restart your computer in Safe Mode (not necessary unless the virus/whatnot is interfering with your ability to use your computer) 3. Run HijackThis and save a log 4. Paste the log into http://www.hijackthis.de/ and/or post the log here and you'll get some advice.

superantispyware (www.superantispyware.com) has been amazing at finding and removing stuff that ad-ware or spybot (to say nothing of trend micro) in our network. There are 2 versions, an installed one (which usually works well) and a standalone, in cases where you have to boot in safe mode and thus are unable to install anything). As was said, however, you need more than one.
