    Hey guys,
    Hows everyone been?

    My question for you today is about a possible virus I may have aquired.

    This all started a a few day ago when I started noticing my computer behaving strangely.

    So I ran a full scan of Malwarebytes, and low and behold it found several trojans. Luckily Malware was able to quarantine and delete the infected files. After deleting the virulent files I ran Malware again and it found nothing.

    The computer has been behaving fine except for one thing.
    Every time I turn on or restart the PC I am greeted with this...

    Any Ideas. I googled the kmspice.exe program and nothing came up.
    My next move was to download a free AV program and do a scan. If anyone can recommend me a good free A/V program It would be most appreciated.

    But in the mean time, what to do you guys think of this whole situation.
    As Always
    Thanks for Your Help!!

    Corrected the image and as you can see it is indeed kmspice.exe...

    I've never had this before so what free A/V would you guys recommend to do a scan?

    Upload that file on virustotal and see the results.

    A google search shows it's either a virus, or part of some activation program to trick licenses (kmspico and kmspice sometimes are found on the same pages, not sure if it's a typo).

    You should definately check with all malware stuff you got, eventually upload it to virustotal or whatever.

    That was my first instinct but the folder that the file resides in doesn't seem to exist. I have hidden files visible enabled, yet no dice. Looks like I'll give spybot and Avira a shot.

    Thanks guys.

    When virus is already on system then booting from rescue CD (from ESET, BitDefender, Kaspersky,...) is good solution (better then scanning right in infected OS).
