I know i've seen this before....these fake pop ups from a fake windows security center saying I have some problems. Don't know exactly how to get rid of it, maybe somebody here has some advice? Pretty sure I got it going to a bad website which my antivirus didn't pick up on as bad.

I ran SmitfraudFix...seemed to fix that problem but I'm having some start up issues where the computer wasn't freezing but wasn't loading after login. The mouse moved but you couldn't click anything. Appears to be ok now but I don't know if that's a sign of things to come.
