from the full HJT log this line is the only one that has the .exe file..

O4 - HKCU\..\Policies\Explorer\Run: [Windows Printing Driver] WinSpooler.exe

is the rest of the HJT log necessary?

the popup reads. [ "Patch applied successfully! If your software is still trial maybe you need to intall it before patch it."]

How do I get rid of this?

Hello and welcome to BC wtmac,

In order to assist you we need additional information.

What is your operating system: Windows XP, Vista, etc.?

What are you doing when the pop-up appears?

Please do not post an HJT log, we do not deal with them in this forum. If it is determined that you need to post an HJT log, you will be provided directions for doing so at that time.
