Virus Infection

I am currently getting a message popping up from my system tray saying: Your computer is infected, it is recommended to use anti-spyware tools to prevent data loss. Windows will now download and install the most up-to-date anti spyware for you. Click here to protect your computer from spyware.
If I click on the link, nothing happens, this message emanates from a white cross on a red background. I have tried getting rid of it with add-aware and spybot search and destroy, spybot sees a problem but cannot remove it. I would be gratefull if anyone could help me get rid of this menace.
