Hello there. Every time I open my PC there is this message: You may be a victim of software counterfeiting. I heard this is a virus called VIDEO ACTIVE X OBJECT or smth similar, anyway I dowloaded a series of antiviruses, I cleaned my PC but they did not find this one and it is still there. Can you help me? :?

Log looks ok. May I ask if your Windows is genuine? Do these screenshots look familiar?
