About every few times i click a link, it brings me to a page that says, " Your pc has detected to viruses...." It gives me a number to call, and some other information. It is usually a red screen. I don't know for sure what it is, or how to get rid of it, but I know its fake and someone out there is trying to do something. How do I get rid of this? It also might have generated from click a fake "x" on ads.

The viruses it mentioned were something along the line of rootkit. and trojan. If anyone has a solution please help me out.

Edit:

This is what I keep seeing.

it's pretty obvious that "super anti-spyware" isn't working, if you've scanned multiple times and you are still having an issue. use malware bytes.

That is so weird. My dad uses it, my brother uses it, I got it because a friend uses it, and they don't have any problems. I'm not saying you are wrong, I just don't get why mine doesn't work.

I am running the scan right now. I really hope this works. I don't know for sure if my pc is infected, but it surely is annoying and scary to see this happening everyday.

It isn't that I don't trust you, but I have never heard of that one, nor have I been or seen that site. I have heard of malwarebytes.org.

Well the other problem is all the knuckleheads out there these days who think its funny or want money from people. I am only 15 and I have come to realize this. Thanks for helping me through this by the way.

Ok so the scan is done. Before I quarantine all the files, is there anything specific I should look for?

you can note what infections it found, but its not really relevant. how many different infections did it find?

also, after quarantine, reboot the system, and run a FULL scan once more.

I restarted. started my second scan. While I did so I opened Pandora. Pandora opened and in another tab the same virus window opened.
