Spyware bot

The above has detected 58 pieces of spyware on my computer which it said the download was free.

It's now asking me to pay $48 for it to remove them - is this right??

It's also saying that the credit card page is unencrypted and can be read by a third party.

Is this a bit stinky???

Also - any other ideas of how to get rid if this is no good?

Thanks

Hannah
