Every time I start windows I get a message that appears in a small rectangular box after windows has booted up. It says: "In order to update your computer restart now" with a yes no option. After choosing yes and computer restarts the message reappears and so on So you have to choose no. I have super-anti spyware, AVG anti virus and threatfire all up to date and scan the system regularly but the message pops up every time windows is started. Any ideas how I can ridd myself of this pest?

Hello is this an XP,Vista etc... machine??

Is that the exact message?

OR "Restarting your computer is required". The message further says "The computer must be restarted before updating can continue. Would you like to restart now?"
