I would like to say hello to all. I'm John and this is my first time on here. My question is I keep getting a pop up message:

MICROSOFT WINDOWS ALERT
SPYWARE DETECTED ON YOUR PC. REMOVE IT NOW.
OK CANCEL


This message will pop up every 20 minutes or so. If you click on OK it takes you somewhere to buy SPYWARE software. I run a SPYBOT and an ADAWARE and the AOL thing. How do I stop this message from popping up every 20 minutes or so?

You should post a HijackThis! log to the correct forum, since this is neither comming from MS or your operating system, but is the result of an infestation. Read the following before you send a log to our volunteer team of experts, who can help you get rid of the problem, and perhaps others, as well (be sure to preface it with a description of the problem you are having):

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
