Looks like you got owned. Don't click that bubble. The "certified antivirus" will simply make your life worse here. Go out and get something like the trial of NOD32 if you don't currently have an antivirus.

Thanks, probably the same exact reason for me. I need to stop letting my little cousins use my computer.



One more thing, should I be aware of anything else I can do to remove it?

Well as suggested above you could get a trial of NOD36 and also when you are at the AVG stie get the free spyware program. Also you may want to consider getting these free tools. (just google them)
hijack this
Search and destroy
ZoneAlarm

Hopefuly if you get these it should stop this from happening again. Also there is programs out there which could stop your cousins from going on those types of sites.
