When I switched my PC on this morning, there was a message (see picture) which looked like a genuine windows message. After reading it, a virus scanning program called spy axe 3.0 was downloaded, so I figured this wasn't a genuine message from windows. I uninstalled the program and deleted all of the files it came with but the message keeps appearing. Can anyone help?(n)

The picture is a little too small to see. The message reads: Your computer is infected!

spyaxe is a piece of crap. It hijacks the computer, tells the user they're infected, points the browser to a url to purchase the clean up. It itself is the malware.

Here is a link to clean it up.

Use Adware and Spybot, Microsoft anti-spyware and anything else you can get your hands on to help protect your system.
