Red outlined Popup box says:
Your computer is infected!
"Critical system error!
System detected virus activities.
They may cause critical system failure.
Please, use antimalware to clean and protect your system from parasite programmes. Click here to get all available software."
Also popup a baloon:
"System alert adware and spyware.
Your computer performance slowed down. your intrnet conection speed has decresed. You receive more spam emails than ever. Use spyware scan to find out the reason."
I have just run "Windows live security (beta)" It found some stuff and deleted it. But it also said some things "Could not be cleaned"
(Trogen incuded!!) I still get the popup box, and popup baloon.

IF I go to the "click here" sites, they want me to pay for installing software removal, I think there cheeky twats and its a scam. However, I would probably pay to have my comp' fixed, but I dont have a credit card!!
Thank you, Thank you all for help. It is much appreciated.
John Harpmaker.
