The text in the picture was pretty much unreadable unfortunatly, but isn't that just a warning that you don't have a antivirus (that Windows recognizes as such) installed?
If you don't have an antivirus installed and are on a short budget I can recommend a one with a free version. Avast, http://www.avast.com/. I prefer it over most of the commercial packages (all of them actually). Avoid Norton, or Symantec or whatever it's called now because it tends to be a system hog, confusing and plain bad.

Another free option used to be Grisoft's AVG but I think the free version is discontinued now. Anyway, I left AVG for Avast because it feels more solid and faster.

Try changing the Options of the Internet Explorer. Chart "Security". I guess your setting is "high". At this setting, the browser sometimes reacts overprotecting when you visit sites with Java Script and Parsing Fields (Text insertion/Login-Password). The IE probably wants to protect you from phishing-websites.

PS: I don't know if I picked the rights words in english. I hope you understand what I mean.

Edit: I don't use IE, anyway I think you can exclude separate sites from severe security check and leave the security settings at "high". Otherwise I'd recommend "medium".

Yea, this isnt nessessarily a sign that you have a virus. It's probably just Internet Explorer being overly paranoid.

Use FIrefox as your main browser and use SPybot Search&Destroy (freeware) and AVG Free. There's a new 8.0 version that is free.

Ah, OK. So it is only the 7.xx that's discontinued then.

Yes this isnt telling you that you have a virus, its a warning from your brower that you may be "unprotected".

I would just download and use firefox, its alot more secure when browsing than IE smile.gif

I'm pretty sure that thats some spyware or adware you got your computer contagious with..I remember having that error..SO I suggest running spybot programe as Ivan suggested and other anty spyware software you can get your hands on...
Also I suggest switching to Mozilla Firefox browser..

If you can get rid of that with any software you may need to format windows sad.gif

Thank you for the help guys smile.gif Your all so awesome

Here is where I stand now

1) Ran AVG .. no viruses
2) Ran SpyBot - Search and Destroy .. nothing found
3) When I go onto my parents file (master file) it comes up that I have 15 viruses on a program called SpyGuarder? It says it can detect them but I need the full version ($50) to destroy them. Im thinking this is a scam, as nothing else found any viruses (I also ran NOD32 and Avast)

Any other suggestions as to how I should fix this? smile.gif

PS when I use FireFox, I try and watch the videos on GMC, and it says I need the new flash player or something, so I download it, then it says I need to restart FireFox, so I do .. then it still won't let me watch videos, it says I need the new version sad.gif

Help is very much appreciated smile.gif

Well it is definitely a some sort of Spyware it is very obvious it is. If SPybot couldn't find it (i hope you updated it ...) then you can try another tool which worked wonders for me. It is called SPyware doctor. It's not free, but you can use it for some time on trial. I once used it to recover from a serious problem and the program worked very good.
