Hi all, a couple days ago I started getting weird pop ups from a "Antivirus Visa" icon in the bottom right tray. It says " Security Breach" or "Threat Detected" or "Virus Detection".
Every half hour or so I get a window trying to get me to register it or buy a "full version", sometimes a window saying "Security Alert". Also, I get "reports" listing spyware and keyloggers but it's all random stuff i've never downloaded or even seen.

I am using Vista but I don't think the icon has been there before this. I have Kaspersky 2010, which I always keep on and updated... I ran a full scan and it still says my computer is protected, though it says it detected 3 trojans. :thumbsup: I'm really not sure what to do here since the disinfect button is just grayed out and unclickable. Also, I downloaded Spybot, ran a scan, clicked "fix selected problems" and I still get the pop ups... I'll keep this marked so I can answer any questions anyone willing to help might have. Thanks, any help is greatly appreciated!!!

Edit: I think the trojan detects on Kaspersky are ok. One is disinfected, one is under an "absent" tab (i guess that's good lol), and one was just a web page that I'm pretty sure is fine. But yeah the Vista thing is still there...
