So today I was in the middle of going to update my AVG and I clicked on some banner ad by accident. And now I have this red X in the spot near my clock. I have tried removing it and it doesn't show up on my program list or in my Add/Remove programs either. But the little message keeps popping up saying that My computer is infected.

I have deleted 7 trojans off my computer using Avast! and it is still there. no spyware scans that I have done using Spybot S&D or SpywareTerminator have brought anything up.

Also, before today my CPU usage was always at 100% since the infection bubble started popping up, it only shows 0-10% of usage. I don't know if this matters in everything, but I thought I would mention it.

Any and all responses should be given as simply as possible because I really don't know THAT much about computer jargon. Thank you very much.

My problem was solved. I decided to back up my files on an external, scanned that, and reformatted to factory.
