SpySheriff displays secure32.html - where does Secure32.html come from?

Question:

My computer got infected with Spysheriff and I was able to remove it. But it still shows a blue background and the bogus warning as the background - which is set up in file c:secure32.html. When I delete the file, it comes back. Where does this Secure32.html come from?

Answer:

The file secure32.html is generated by a program called Paytime.exe.
Paytime.exe is located in C:\WINDOWS\system32\paytime.exe

How to solve this problem:
  1. Bring up your taskmanager by pressing Control + Alt + Delete, in some Windows versions select the 'Processes' tab. Then click on 'Paytime.exe' and end the task.
  2. Delete paytime.exe, which you should find under c:WindowsSystem32
  3. Delete c:secure32.html
  4. Run Explorer. It will tell you that it cannot find the path for secure32.html. Use the default configuration of Explorer and everything will be OK.
