Download and run malwarebytes (freeware version), let it clean whatever it wants.

How do you know you have those 2 .exe files? Are they detected by MS and mbam? Can you delete them manually?

I downloaded um, something, then there was some message about it from MSE. I manually scanned the files and it found nothing, then I ran one of them and now no more MSE.
