Guys,

I have removed all remnants of the virus that caused this pop up. However they is something still on the pc that will randomly cause this message to be displayed. I have searched all over google and tried the suggestions I have found but so far nothing will get the pop up to stop coming back.

I have run:

Malwarebytes
Roguekiller
Rkill
Ccleaner
Adwcleaner
Hitman pro

and nothing seems to be able to remove this pop up.

Hello,
Have you run each of those utilities more than once?  Best practice is if something is found, let the utility clean it and then run the same utility again.  Keep running it till the items found is zero.  If it is a utility that requires reboot for removal (malware bytes usually) reboot and run the utility Again.

I have run them all several times. Last time the scans didnt find anything.

The popup shows in task manager as "imageloader"

Looks like zemana found a file called wincpu.exe that is said was the file causing the pop up. Hopefully this is resolved now. I havent had the pop up since zemana ran.
