Windows Security Alerts Pop-up Problem!

Recommended Posts

I recently confronted a lot of problems with my pc, but still have some hesitance as to how well I've cleaned up the mess. I've used AVG, Malwarebytes's Anti-Malware and Spybot to clean up most of it but I still think I have a couple problems. It seems that something called wscntfy.exe runs on my windows task manager that wasn't there before, and every time I try to shut it down manually it restarts, leading me to suspicions of malware or even worse. It's framing itself as my windows security Alerts, which I know is not the case. My OS is Windows XP SP3 and I'm attaching my hijackthis log along with my post. Hope someone can help me clear things up a bit. Thanks in advance!

Hi and welcome to Malwarebytes.

Please update MBAM, run a Quick Scan, and post its log.

Next, download DDS by sUBs and save it to your Desktop.

Double-click on the DDS icon and let the scan run. When it has run two logs will be produced, please post only DDS.txt directly into your reply.
