Hey there, again I'm here asking for your help.

From time to time a popup window apears, saying :

"Warning:Windows firewall detected suspicious network activity (btw, my wind FW is deactivated, using balck ice instead) on your PC. Malicius software might be trying to steal your.. bla bla bla
Do you want to learn how to protect your computer?
YES/NO"

This proces is linked in task manager as:
Windows Security Center and the apropriate process (WSCNTFY.EXE)
And when clicking on it, opens
http://spybotandware...=remove spyware


From time to time another baloon apears in the lower right corner to say something like - u have been infected, klick me to resolv, and opens an "help" file linking to the same "free" programs.

Both are verry anoying, because always alt/tab me from whatever I do, or my PC just freezes.
Here is the HJT log:
