Hey, thanks for taking the time to read this. I'm using Windows 7 and my Trend Micro Titanium antivirus software on a HP pavillion dv5 laptop. Trend Micro informed me today that I had 11 infections of TROJ_KRYPTIX.SMO that it couldn't delete because access was denied. It said I should never open or copy the files. It's been consistently notifying me of more of the same infection. At the time of this post I'm up to 18. I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to computers but I'm concerned it may be self-replicating, if that's possible. It says the location is C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Temp\winupd.exe . I would like to know what kind of threat this poses, and if I need to stop it, how I should go about stopping it. I haven't seen any consequences of it's existence so far other than Trend Micro telling me I have new infections.Can I just delete them? Any help or attempts at help are greatly appreciated.

Hello, lets do these and see if they come back.

Run TFC by OT (Temp File Cleaner)
Please download TFC by Old Timer and save it to your desktop.

Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.
