Hi to all.

Wondering if someone could help me with a problem i have. Whilst onlin a couple of days ago, a program called Virus Buster downloaded onto my desktop and advised that i had spyware on my computer and offered to clean this and protect in future if i purchased their software. Since then i am continuing to get pop up baloons from the task bar at the bottom of my screen from different software suppliers offering me the same service. When i clicked on the buy now option and tried to run the software, my pc advised me not to trust the software as it didn't have a digital signature. I then deleted the Virus Buster program from my desktop but i'm continuing to get pop ups from my task bar. The current one reads "System alert: Malware threats. Your computer is infected with a back door trojan that allows the remote attacker to perform various malicious actions. Click this balloon to download malware removal software."

Can anyone help with this?
