Hi there,


I have both Microsoft Security essentials and McAffee Antivirus for the past couple of years with no issues. Couple of weeks ago Security essentials started finding Alureon.J and keeps quarantining it at login and atleast once in an hour. Now for the past 1 week, it detects it every time I launch an application or run some exe file. Quarantine or Remove as the default action doesn't make any difference.


TDSSKiller -> this found 6 unsigned other items (not Alureon.J). Removed them. It did find Alureon.J once but I was able to only Skip it. When I found it one another time, I tried deleting it, bunch of 4 or 5 viruses were found. Now, it doesn't find this for the past 1 week.


Malware bytes, Super Antisypware, Malware byte anti rootkit, NPE, Offline Windows Defender from Flash Drive -> nothing helps.


Partition Table from Malware Byte Anti RootKit:


Partition 0 Type is Other (0xde)
Starts at LBA: 63, Numsec = 160587

Partition 1 Type is Primary (0x7)
Starts at LBA: 161792, Numsec = 1536000

Partition 2 Type is Primary (0x7)
Starts at LBA: 1697792, Numsec = 975073280

Partition 3 Type is Empty (0x0)
Starts at LBA: 0, Numsec = 0


Any suggestions?
