Somehow I got this thing on my computer after having downloaded a Windows Media Player codec, it appears in the form of a Windows style system error message in my toolbar which reads: "critical system error - System detected virus activities. They may cause critical system failure. Please use antimalware software to clean and protect your system from parasite programs. Click this balloon to get all available software". Once clicked it opens an IE window prompting you to buy "virusbuster" which apparently is a fake program showing fake virus infection messages to get you to pay for a fake product. Did some searches on the web which recommended getting specific spyware removal tools however I'm not sure whether they are fake as well or even just as bad. It's quite annoying as the system error message keeps appearing and I cannot get rid of it. Tried to look through the posts but couldn't as yet find any with a similar problem. Anyone able to help me please???
