Virusburst/[email protected]?

  Deucalion 11:26 28 Feb 2008

Hi, My computer seems to have been infiltrated by something I believe is called Virusburst. I keep getting pop-ups telling me there is a system alert or a security alert due to a virus or trojan. When I click on the bubble it takes me to a page to download software. I have AVG, Super Antispyware and Avast running on my computer, but they can't seem to get rid of it, and it causes them to close down,saying an error has occured. Please, please can anybody help as I don't know what else to do to try and remove it.
