Sysrem alert pop up

  Verbose 16:16 07 Jul 2007

For no apparent rson I keep getting a pop balloon which says" SYSTEM ALERT Systemhas detected a number of active spyware applications that may impact the performance of your computer. Click the icon(shield with cross in it)to get rid of unwanted spyware by downloading an up to date anti spyware solution."

When I click on the icon I get invited to download
software called Virus Protect Pro.
Also in the system tray I have a new icon. a red shield with a cross in it which alternates with a blue question mark.
How can I get rid of this annoyance. I have AVG free +Commodo firewall, and I also use Spybot.

Spyware / Malware to me, I have never heard of Virus Protect Pro, and it's not on this list click here I would update your spybot s&d and your antivirus and run them both.

Hi Verbose, I have come across this before and using {Superantispyware} gets rid of it,

When you have downloaded {SAS} make sure you check for any updates before running it,

Also delete all temp Internet files and all Cookies,

Download the FREE version,
