My operating system is Windows XP and I have Norton AntiVirus installed. My problem is that Windows (in the notification bar has a pop up saying:

"Your computer is infected!
Dangerous infection was detected on your PC
The system will now download and install most efficient
antimalware program to prevent data loss and your private
information theft.
Click here to protect your computer from the biggest malware threats"

It then proceeds to download and install a program called SpywareStriker.exe

Norton pops a message saying that it has detected a virus named SpywareStrike.exe

This goes back and forth. My question is: What could Windows be detecting that Norton isn't and how can I stop unwanted programs from being installed by Windows?
