I get the following messages: Spyware Alert. Security Warning! Worm.Win32.NetSky detected on your machine. This virus is distributed throug the Internet through email and Active-X objects. The worm has its own SMTP engine which means it gathers emails from your local computer and re-distributes itself. In worst cases this worm can allow attacker to access your computer, stealing passwords and personal data.

Type: Virus
System Affected: Windows 2000, NT, ME, XP, Vista
Security Risk (0-5): 5
Recommendations: click Yes to remove it from your PC immediately (I can't X out of it!)

I also get the following:

'Windows Security Alert'
Windows has detected an Internet attack attempt... Somebody's trying to infect your PC with spyware or harmful viruses. Run full system scan now to protect your PC from Internet attack....

Help please!

Kind regards,
