Fake security warnings

  1. Hello, I keep getting fake security warnings that pop up every 30mins or so and its really starting to drive me up the wall. I ran spybot search & destroy and removed all the spyware that came up but it just comes back again. Here's my HJT log attached.

    Remove these files from your system

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\ifexknin\mvaxspst.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\chapcrgx.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\krqpejwv.exe
    C:\DOCUME~1\User\LOCALS~1\Temp\TSRJJOUYPPE.exe
    C:\DOCUME~1\User\LOCALS~1\Temp\VFM.exe

    Restart and test again

    I removed all those files. The 1st two files wouldn't delete (cannot delete xyz: access denied...) so i had to end their processes in task manager and then delete the actual files. Just waiting to see if fake warnings stop popping up. Thanks for your help :)

    That's ok
    But some of these Trojans can also copy themselves back again and again to new unheard of names.

    If I were you I'd follow the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions link in full

    Actually run CCleaner through it first.
    Why scan temp files.
