How to remove IGOR PAVLOV software/malware

11 posts in this topic

I have made two attempts to install and run KIS 2011; on both occasions the Adobe Activation service for Acrobat 9 got listed under "IGOR PAVLOV".

 

I have reverted to KIS 2010, completely removed all Adobe applications and re-installed. There is no sign of IGOR PAVLOV software at present.

 

Does anyone know where in the registry this parasite could be hiding? Quick scan including quick rootkit scan did not reveal anything.

Maybe it was removed during the uninstallation of Acrobat. But I want to be sure.

It is not malware. Do you have 7-Zip installed? It is a known bug in Firewall applications grouping.

I had read about its association with 7Zip. I had WINZIP. I uninstalled and reinstalled WINZIP.

That is kind of funny richbuff :laugh3:

 

I found some more I think... are these known bugs or should they be also?

 

1. My WinRar Archiver is listed under "ALEXANDER ROSHAL"

2. My Log Transport Application and Apple Software Update are listed under "IGOR PAVLOV"

3. My Java Quickstarter Service and Java Platform SE Binary are listed under "SEREBY"

4. My CloneCD Tray application is listed under "OLEG N SCHERBAKOV" instead of SlySoft

 

<BTW> What is this "Popularity" column all about with a number of figures outlined or filled in?

Its not malware or a parasite. The information comes from a mixture of signatures in files and Kaspersky's KSN database.

Hi dawgg,

If you were answering my post I didn't mean to imply that it is malware or a parasite if that seemed like what I was saying... what I meant was richbuff said it was a known bug in version 2011 that it displays (in the case of the original poster) some Adobe program as IGOR PAVLOV software. In my case IGOR PAVLOV software is showing Apple Software Updater and another program to be under it, and the other ones I listed.

 

As far as I can tell, all the programs listed under those Russian names work OK, and I thought it was kind of humorous that it lists the programs that way, and if that is considered a bug then my post was meant to be an additonal bug report, and not that I thought any of the programs listed under those names don't work as they were intended to, or are not genuine programs.

My post relating to 'IGOR PAVLOV' software has to do with the fact that I never knowingly installed any software by IGOR PAVLOV and do not want to. Adobe software was not created by IGOR PAVLOV!
