I've been getting popups that tell me I have viruses, and the named viruses are:

Spyware
Abebot
trojandownloader.xs

And another popup I keep getting is that my computer cannot find the file" C:\WINDOWS\nsmss.exe"

How do I get rid of these popups as well as the viruses? I tried using Antivirus programs, but nothing's been working.

Welcome to the forums :)

What security software do you have on your PC and what have you already tried using to remove these threats?

You may want to move your thread to the malware forums.

I Suggest you take your log to the malware doctors found in this forum.
Please make sure that you read this before posting anything in the malware forum.

If you're still having problems after the malware doctors declare your log clean feel free to post back here and we'll help you to the best of our knowledge! :)

Regards,
Olrik

Thanks a lot. Well I have Sbybot S&D and SuperAnitSpyware, but the problems persist.

So by log, you mean the HJT logs, correct?

Thanks a lot all.
