On my laptop I keep getting this pop-up in the bottome right of my desktop next to the time saying my computer is infected.

It says "Windows has detected spyware infection click here to protect your computer from spyware." I click it and nothing happens I actually downloaded some spyware programs from your download section and none of them detect any. I was wondering if maybe windows is messed up and just keeps saying it. If anyone has any suggestions I would realy appreciate it thank you.
