Its got all the characteristics of spyware, as I said Ive never had it , its sounds similar to the WINFIX pop up that used come up when you visited certain websites but most AV have patched that now, It seems there are only a select few on here who get it so it must be down to your web browser security settings, why don't you start a poll on CF to see how many members have actually had it.

Here's a screenshot of my error. As I said, I scanned for spyware and it wasn't resolved. Do you guys know of any other better free spyware program that Spybot S&D?

It only happens when I am on computerforums.org, and I use Firefox.
