I desperately need help with my system. Every 10 seconds a pop up with the heading "Windows Antivirus" comes up on my taskbar. It says that windows has detected a spyware infection. Furthermore, a "Windows security alert" comes up saying that theres a potential spyware operation on my computer. This is very frustrating, and I have tried many things to get rid of it but cannot. Can someone please help me get rid of this virus??

Thanks, in advance for your help!

You really must help us to help you!! Saying you have a popup problem is a pretty bland statement. Many tools run, but you don't list them.. so I could be wasting my time posting this....?

==Get CCleaner from http://www.ccleaner.com/ - and install it in a new folder. You should keep this one for general use. I set the installation checkboxes only to open from the recycle bin. It's neater that way.
Now run CCleaner from the recycle bin rclick menu using its default settings [if you set up CCleaner as i suggested, rclicking the bin icon should give you the Open CCleaner option...].
If you have FireFox open the Applications tab and ensure at least that Cookies and Cache are checked.
Select the Cleaner icon, press Run Cleaner.
Run CCleaner in any other Accounts.
==Download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri) from http://siri.urz.free.fr/Fix/SmitfraudFix.zip
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.
- Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd, select option #1 - Search [type 1 and Enter]; a text file will appear which lists infected files (if present). It will also create a log named rapport.txt in the root of your drive, eg: Local Disk C:\ ..
Please paste the report in your next reply. DO NOT RUN OPTION 2 YET!!!
==download hijackthis: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download5554.html
-copy it to a new FOLDER placed either alongside your program files or on your desktop and then... rename hijackthis.exe to imabunny.exe
-in that folder start HijackThis by dclicking the .exe; now close ALL other applications and any open windows including the explorer window containing HijackThis.
-click the Scan and Save a Logfile button. Post the log here.
