System Alert Warning

  yapstan 17:08 30 Sep 2007

Hi when i turn on my computer in the taskbar tray i get a warning red shield with a cross in the shield saying, system alert system has detected a number of active spyware applications that may impact the performance of your computer. Click to get rid of unwanted spyware by downloading up to date anti spyware solutions. Then a web page comes up named click here. Have run macafee scan and adaware scan and found nothing. Any ideas how to get rid of it.
