Take off your Your Upper case printing to start with.And if you have an Icon opening up wanting you to download new Spyware, Do not open it.You could try A Squared it's free .click here If you make sure that you up-date it first then run a Deep Scan it will take about an hour.

Do as buteman says, this sounds like one of those Malware programs that get on your PC and try to get you buy some rubbishy software that creates problems instead of solving them.
Once you have run A squared and made sure you are clean I would also rerun your anti virus software(whatever you use).

Once you have run "a2", tell us what security software you have installed , and someone will come up with a few suggestions of Free Software that should help you avoid such a situation in the future.

By the way, most of us have been in the same situation, that you are, at some time or other.

"Don't down load the software that the Pop-up suggested". It will only cause grief

mark3986,
The Software advice and general security selection in the "click here " at [email protected]:52 is sound.
The antispyware programs and other security measures linked are amongst the most,if not the most popular on the forum(courtesy of skidzy).
However Still post the exact message, as sometimes particular strains can prove more difficult to remove and will require more expert help.
As advised Do not open or click the pop ups.
