Solving this problem download combofix and run on your system and it will disinfect that file and remove all this type hidden virus problem which was you don’t know any where in your system. This file will automatically scan all this type of problem in your computer and using this you may clean your system, I think using this solution you solve your problem properly.

Use following steps for solving this problem

1. Go to Start > Run > type Notepad.exe and click OK to open Notepad.
2. Type or Copy following text in this notepad file

Code:
KillAll::
FCopy::

3. Then save this file with name of CFScript.txt , save this file on desktop.
4. Then drag the CFScript into ComboFix.exe that time ComboFix.exe will scan and remove all the problem and after that restart your computer and that time you not get any error message.
