Hi,

I've been trying to remove this malware and have been unsuccessful. I ran a quick scan on malware bytes and one infected item was found. I removed this item but the icon in the bottom right corner of my computer was still there when I restarted the computer. The icon shows "Windows Security Alerts" when I hover my cursor over it. When I open it, it shows Windows Security Center. When this process starts or restarts it, a balloon pops up from the icon saying my computer may be at risk because I have no fire wall or anti virus protection. When I try to kill it's process "wscntfy.exe" it restarts. I cannot delete the file which is located in C:\WINNT\System32\wscntfy.exe because it is constantly running. So far the only symptom I've noticed is my internet connection not working on all of my browsers; I've been able to fix this on Firefox by Tools > Options > Advanced > Settings > No Proxy but I've yet to fix it on IE and Chrome.

Here is my HiJackThis log:
