Hi, so I just had this thing called WinReanimator and I followed the procedures in this link to get rid of it:

How to remove WinReanimator (Removal Instructions)

After I restarted, everything seems fine but I the bubble that says

Your computer is infected
Windows has detected spyware infection!

It is recommended to use special antispyware tools to prevent data loss. Windows will now download and install most up-to-date antispyware for you.

So yeah, =/ I looked at another site where you can delete it manually and it said to delete the following:

WinReanimator.exe from Processes
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall WinReanimator from Regedit
C:\Program Files\WinReanimator\WinReanimator.exe
C:\Program Files\WinReanimator\

Well, I tried to look for these but I can't seem to find it... =/ I think the Malwarebytes already deleted it. But I just can't seem to get rid of the bubble from the bottom right on the taskbar! ARGH! Can someone help me please! =) Thanks in advance.
