That sounds like registry has the entry call up that virus which apparently is no longer in the Temp folder, use a registry cleaner and it should get rid of that message unless you can find it yourself in the Registry and delete it. Use TFC to clear out all Temp Folder contents just to be sure there is nothing in there .

As already mentioned it's the loading point that is still calling for the bad file to load hence the error. Fixing the entries in Hijackthis should stopped the error.

Run Hijackthis again and fix these entries in Hijackthis:

F3 - REG:win.ini: load=C:\DOCUME~1\7azem\LOCALS~1\Temp\
F3 - REG:win.ini: run=C:\DOCUME~1\7azem\LOCALS~1\Temp\
F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,C:\WINDOWS\system32\
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {02478D38-C3F9-4efb-9B51-7695ECA05670} - (no file)
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {02478D38-C3F9-4efb-9B51-7695ECA05670} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HotKey] C:\Documents and Settings\7azem\Templates\cache\vmx.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [User Agent] C:\WINDOWS\system32\
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [HotKey] C:\Documents and Settings\7azem\Templates\cache\vmx.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [User Agent] C:\DOCUME~1\7azem\LOCALS~1\Temp\

Then run ComboFix as already suggested or run MalwareBytes and do a quick scan. Post the logs please.
