Hi, first and foremost welcome to Bleeping Computer :thumbsup:

Before we assist you with removing these warnings, are you using Spyware Blaster by any chance?
Also, what is your Operating System, Anti virus, Firewall etc. ?

according to this thread of yours

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/148335/what-virusspyware-do-you-reccommend/

you have uninstalled avg8.0 and reverted to avg 7.5?

one assumes you have now run complete scans WITH avg7.5 and are ???clean?

if not ; maybe you need to post your test results?

Run the Malware Bytes Anti Malware Scan

And also, there are known conflicts between having Spyware Blaster and AVG 8.0 installed. If you dont use spyware blaster, I recommend you uninstall it as the scan results look like false positives caused by Spyware Blaster's imunize feature.

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop.

Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

THEN:
Download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free for Home Users

  • An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
  • If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download and unzip them from here.)
  • Under "Configuration and Preferences", click the Preferences button.
  • Click the Scanning Control tab.
  • Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
    • Close browsers before scanning.
    • Scan for tracking cookies.

  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan.
  • Click "Next" to start the scan. Please be patient while it scans your computer.
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".

  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes".
  • To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
    • Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
