Have you downloaded WinRAR Free Edition from Google Sponsored Links lately?

If you have, then I have some bad news for you. Your WinRAR may have been bundled with a malicious file named explore.exe in your Windows system32 folder. The malicious file binds itself with Windows start-up and makes a few changes to your system. PC users that have been infected by this malicious malware reported that they have been nagged with an irritating message box with ‘intervalhehehe’ texts every one minute.

If your system has been infected by this new ‘intervalhehehe’ malware, find some malware protection fast. I wish I could suggest a good spyware detector or spyware remover for you but I’m no expert on internet security. Perhaps WebSense Security Labs can assist you on that. Go ahead and ask them.
