Hey everyone, I keep getting little popups in the corner of the screen next to the time...they are signs with exclamation marks. Anyway they keep saying things like your infected with spyware, you have a trojan on your computer. I have ran AdAware and Norton and nothing came of it.
One of the screens is as follows

"Critical System Error"
"Your PC has been infected by spyware. Spyware and other unwanted software refers to programs that perform certain tasks on your computer. This can include installing Pop Up Advertising and Collecting your personal information."

If someone could help me, a new one pops up every 10 minutes or so. So far it has been 3 different types over and over.
