Hello BC and I am back after a long while. My computer is always filled with problems. However, lately It's been fine. Well there's something going on in my temp folder and ThreatFire AntiVirus.
It keeps warning me about a program deleting itself. I don't really quite get it. Google hasn't really been my buddy on this one.

Well it comes up every, let's say, half hour. So I'll have more info on this particular file when it allerts me again.

Once you have the name of the file from Threat Fire's warning, you could submit the file to Virus Total.
Just click on the browse button in the link below and browse to the suspicious file and submit it. Sometimes it only takes a minute, other times much longer. They also allow you to submit using email.

If you can't find the file, consider doing an online scan using Kaspersky's Online Scanner.

I never liked threatfire.

There's something about a program that makes me install in safe mode, then prevents me from getting online at all, that I don't think is kosher.
