    Is that advertising trying to sell you, one (or more) of these useless products? If it is one of these, then it is likely an infection called Smitfraud that is causing the phony warnings. It is scam advertising trying to swindle you. And a link to a free removal tool is down at the bottom.

    If so, then you most likely have a serious Smitfraud infection and a free removal tool called SmitFraudFix with the removal procedure is here:

    More infomation and another free removal tool called RogueFix can be found here:

    Most "All-Purpose" malware apps such as AVG, Norton, Spybot etc unfortunatly can not remove or even detect this vile pest called Smitfraud.

    Good luck.

    Smitfraud is a spyware program that infects the Windows file WININET.DLL with the virus detected as W32/Smitfraud.A.

    The infected DLL (Dynamic Link Library) hooks all the calls to the function HttpSendRequest, and as a result the spyware is able to log the web pages accessed by the user and send this information to a server, or download and run a file that installs a so-called antispyware program on the computer, stealthily and without user consent.

    This program changes the Windows Desktop to a picture that simulates a Windows fatal error, warning users that they have been affected by Trojan-Spy.HTML.Smitfraud.c. These kind of messages attempt to trick users into purchasing the fake antispyware program.

    Smitfraud is installed in the affected computer by an adware program, detected as CWS.YEXE,

    its currently not in circulation...(live) but it still contained in files on servers....be carefull with p2p filesharing...always scan the file before you preview or open it.......go to pandalabs.com and do an online scan...it will remove all trace of the problem....then just find the file that installed it...all the best

    It could be adware.

    You may need to switch off System Restore as back up files may be hiding in there, and it will just restore itself. Go to Start - programs - accessories - system tools - system restore. Click the link on the left, follow the instructions.

    Run Ad-Aware SE and AVG anti spyware in Safe Mode. To get into Safe Mode repeatedly press the F8 key after the bios screen loads but before Windows loads. You'll know if you made it because the screen will be at 800 x 600 and your pc will be slow.
