Whenever you recieve these popups talking about spyware problems, and clicking Yes will fix your problem. Always go up to the X in the right hand
corner, as clicking No will usually have the same effect as Yes.
Remember its better to be safe than sorry.
If the popup is giving you a direct link to fix your problem, 99.9% of the time this is a hoax.
Spyaxe, Spysheriff, Spyquake, Winfixer, Winantivirus these are all a few examples of popups you may see explaining that your system is in need of
protection. Some of these will offer you a great service at a low cost. Well it may be a low cost but you are recieving no support, and putting
yourself in a worse position than in the first place.
If you click the link in my signature, I deal with alot of these problems in regards to the virus and spyware. I work in a Microsoft office part-time
and provide support with these exact problems. Take a few moments and read through the thread, you'll find alot of help to fix this.
