Hello :thumbsup:

This site is a wonderful site! It has MANY removal guides for different infections here:
Spyware and Malware Removal Guides and Reading Room
I wasn't able to find one that was specifically for "Security Warning".

But I found these: (They may or may not be the one you have. Please read the articles to be sure.)

If you are unable to find a removal guide for the specific infection you have,
a good place to start is with ATF Cleaner, then RKill, then Malwarebytes':

ATF Cleaner:

Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use Firefox browser
Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.

If you use Opera browser
Click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.

Notes for Windows Vista users:
On Windows Vista that "Windows Temp" is disabled, to empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator"


Rkill is a small, freeware and portable tool designed to terminate active malware processes allowing you to use other removal tools. Rkill is made by a Microsoft MVP “Lawrence Abrams” and is available in 4 different extensions. An .EXE, .COM, .SCR and a .PIF file.
The reason why Rkill comes in 4 different versions is because some malware will block .EXE files in an attempt to prevent you from running other malware removal tools, so this gets around that problem.


How to use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to scan and remove malware from your computer
Posted by Grinler on February 16, 2010


(Includes a troubleshooting section)
Your "Restore Points" may be infected.
If the Malwarebytes' scan reveals any infected "Restore Points",
I am going to recommend that you TURN OFF System Restore (which will delete all "Restore Points") to
ensure that no infected "Restore Points" remain on your hard drive.

For Windows XP

For Windows Vista


Please include the ENTIRE CONTENTS of the Malwarebytes' scan (copy/paste) into your next reply.
If we don't change the direction we are going,
We are likely to end up where we are headed.
