Hi! I am a proud user of WinMX, one of the best and most useful programs ever developed for Windows, and I came upon this malware site called "Security Stronghold" which makes false claims about such fine software as WinMX, which is obviously only present on those systems on which their owners rightfully installed it of their own free will:

I want to remove this "Security Stronghold" trojan virus site from my Internet, so that I can navigate the Internet without having to come by such ignorant, retarded filth.

Please help me to remove the "Security Stronghold" malware from the Internet, and the world. Your help is appreciated.
