Hi. This has been going on for about 8 months now and it's finally broken me.
When I boot up my PC a "Critical System Error" icon appears and flashes in my toolbar, it also (very annoyingly) pops up with a bubble that harps on about me maybe having some sort virus on my PC. If I click on the bubble it takes me to a website that sells VirusBurster 6.2. I foolishly parted with about 30 ($49-99 to be precise) thinking that this software would erase this "Error" but alas it's still there flashing and bubbling away.

Any advise on getting rid of this would be very gratefully received.

Hi, I also forgot to mention on my previous post that when I try and go to a particular favourite website of mine (football manager not porn), it goes straight to an error page and prompts me to download System Doctor. I've heard bad things about this but desperateley need to check on my footy teams.
Can anyone help, Pleeeease.

Follow the steps on there. If that does not work, follow what it says about posting a new thread.
