Hello;
I am getting a Popup in the lower right hand corner of my screen entitled "Your Computer is infected" (including a yellow triangle with an exclamination point). It is telling me to "Click here to protect your computer from spyware". Discussion groups online say that this is mailware so I have not clicked on it. It will not go away. I updated Symantic Anti Virus 10.1.4.4 and ran a full system scan. I ran Ad-Aware 2007 and AVG Anti-Spyware in Safe Mode. The Popup still appears. I am running Window XP Professional Version 2002 with Service Pack 2. Any assistance you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you;
george27

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
