    RAZOR.EXE - possible trojan. it could also be part of a cracked game, though I doubt that since it's in the system32 folder.
    alchem.exe - spyware/adware.
    WINKA.exe - trojan
    POLmx.exe - trojan

    Some anti-virus programs wouldn't necessarily detect them. (Which anti-virus program do you use? Is the virus database updated?) Try Spybot: Search & Destroy, AdAware SE (pro or basic... it doesn't really matter), or Windows Defender. These programs may be able to take care of all of them. Let me know which ones are removed and not removed. (If this doesn't work after all, then there are still other things you can try to remove the malware files.)

    well.. what I would do.. and what people with PC's that are used frequently.. is getting 2-3 types of anti-spyware...virus etc.. software.. so if one misses something.. chances are the 2nd or 3rd will pick it up... You should do a search on google on how to remove them.

    Tommy, try this program:

    http://killbox.net/

    KillBox should be able to delete all of the exe's, but I don't know for sure. It's worth a try ^_^

    Try what Chris said. If that doesn't work...
    - Try going to the folder and deleting those specific files manually. Don't delete the whole folder because there are important things there (though you probably know that already)
    - Gimpy has a good idea. HOWEVER, make sure only one is used at a time. If you have more than one anti-virus program or firewall running at the same time, then they can interfere with each other.

    I would also suggest Killbox, AdAware SE and if all else fails the craptastic Windows Defender (It is good in some spots but really, really annoying.)

    Also I agree with Fox's suggestions, but another one is to try and find out the effects of the viruses (Which I think you already did)

    It's really not good to leave those on your computer. Some of them can steal information you type in. Someone could potentially steal your passwords or anything you type. You should really do every thing you can to get rid of them. They're a big risk to your privacy and the stable operation of your computer.
    Which ones haven't been removed?

    <div class='quotetop'>(zayne)</div><div class='quotemain'>Windows Defender (It is good in some spots but really, really annoying.)</div>
    I have to agree with that. The program can be annoying sometimes. I hate when it randomly starts doing stuff. I don't know why I have it set to constantly run.

    So those are the only two left? Are they in the System32 folder or the Tiberian Sun folder? They could be safe files that the virus scanner is mistakenly considering viruses AKA false positives. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_positive#Malware
    I have Tiberian Sun too. I know you can delete RAZOR.exe from the game's folder, cause I did on my computer and the game still works... but the executable for that game is called Sun.exe or game.exe for me, not tiberiansun.exe.
