I keep on getting a virus alert in my taskbar. It says, "Critical System Error! System detected virus activities. They may cause critical system failure. Please, use antimalware software to clean and protect your system from parasite programs. Click here to get all available software." If i click this it brings me to a Spyquake setup file. Any ideas on how to get rid of this error message? Take into consideration i'm not familiar with whta a "hijackthis log" is So i think i'm going to need basic instructions plz.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
