I've been getting repeated popup windows containing a "security center alert". It askes if you want to block this suspicious software.... but the window looks fake.

The popup reads as follows:

---------

Security Center Alert

To help protect your computer, Windows Firewall has blocked some features of this program.

Do you want to block this suspicious software?

Name: Backdoor.Win32.Kbot.al
Risk: High Risk
Description: This Trojan provides a remote malicious user with access to the victim machine. It is a Windows PE EXE file. It is 12787 bytes in size.


There are then three buttons:

[Keep Blocking] (greyed out)
[Unblock] (greyed out)
[Enable Protection]

Windows Firewall has detected unauthorized activity, but unfortunately it cannot help you to remove viruses, keyloggers and other spyware threats that steal your personal information from your computer.
