    I am basically computer illiterate and now I have this pop-up which redirects me to either spyaxe or spyware strike. I have tried everything I know to rid my computer of this including downloding something called spybot. So has my friend, who actually knows something about computers. I think that the people who are responsible for this should be prosecuted, but, right now, I would like to know if there is a way for me to get this off my computer, keeping in mind that I am a NOVICE when it comes to computers---Thank you very much---Kevin
