For no apparent rson I keep getting a pop balloon which says" SYSTEM ALERT Systemhas detected a number of active spyware applications that may impact the performance of your computer. Click the icon(shield with cross in it)to get rid of unwanted spyware by downloading an up to date anti spyware solution."

So i downloaded super antispyware and ran it it found 16 infected files so i quaritined them removed them but the problems still there what do i do now?

It sounds like the pop-up could have been the spyware.

Download and run Spyware S&D click here for the Free download.

Yes, that pop-up IS spyware.

Recap and Raven have given sound advice and removal instructions.
However can you tell us of anything you may have downloaded recently such as antispyware programs.

Unless Raven has it the nail on the head or Spybot SD removes this,we will need the programs name or at least more info.

Have you downloaded anything like:

Smiley Central/Messenger Plus to mention just two.

Check in add and remove programs,this will not remove everything and chances are its going to need manual removal and a clean up.

Messenger plus is fine as long as you say no to it's sponsor program, it still works ok
