My computer had a problem that had been going on for sometime.
When i'm surfing the net, a small box will pop up and say :'internet explorer had detected virus activity on the page (page's url)'.
It had a red cross on the left of the box and an 'open' icon to click on.
I tried clicking on the cross at the top right corner of the box to closed it and i also tried clicking the 'open' icon.
Either way, the result is the same. A small red balloon with a white cross will pop up at the bottom right of my screen on the taskbar, saying:
"(a small yellow triangle icon with an exclaimation mark) Windows Secruity Center
Virus was found on page (page's url)
It is highly recommeded to install antivirus application.
Click balloon to install powerfull(yes, the powerful is spelled wrongly) antivirus solution"
At the start, it pops up randomly and rarely, but now, it pops up at every web page that i went to and it is very annoying.
I attacted a picture to show how the pop up looks like.
Anyone knows what is causing this, how harmful it is and how to cure it?
Thanks in advance for your help =)
