My WinXP Pro is telling me that I have a Virus, [email protected]
Spyware blaster,Spybot, nor Ad-Aware will find it, any suggestions please.

How is windows telling you?

Do you have Anti Virus installed?

The fact that swapper said "Windows is telling me i have a virus" leads me to suspect it is a fake message (see my link) and it's a trick to get you to install some other Malware.

Use click here for those long links...

Link obviously too long
Go to click here (symantec site) and navigate to their avcenter and search for [email protected] virus
