First off, I hope this is in the right place! If not, sorry!
I have this Trojan Virus (or I think I do).
Every now and then, I get a fake windows security alert popup that says one of the following:


The only option available is one button leading to an antispyware site, but I closed it fearing more problems.
At first, it wouldn't let me open my task manager.

I read on one site to download this program to remove it, but i'm worried about downloading something and causing even more problems!
That site was this:
and the popup looks exactly like that, just with the different phrases I mentioned above.

I'm really worried about typing passwords incase it takes them, i'm on my boyfriends computer, please, please help - i'm so sorry if this isn't the right place.

My computer is XP.

Other than this, I don't know what to do.

I've ran AVG and Spybot - both found nothing...

Thankyou in advance :)
