I keep getting message alerts. Stop! Windows requires immediate attention. Windows has found 55 critical system errors. Then it tells me to download and run Reg Update.. It sends me to helpfixpc.com And of course it is not free. So I think the company corrupted my registry so they can sell me something to fix it. Tried Spy Bot and Crap Cleaner. No luck. Any ideas?

Buddy, thank you, thank you, thank you. The popups are gone and I was able to get my network connected.
I will run the antivirus programs. You saved my computer.
