Hi i have downloaded morpheus to download some songs, next i get a windows security alert to say that i need to to download win anti viris pro 2006. i have downloaded this and then i get a message from spyware doctor blocking this download. what should i do?

I would do a spyware scan,and maybe a virus scan,and just because a popup tells you to download somthing doesnt always mean its a good thing to do.Win anti virus pro 2006 is a rouge program that pretends to be what its not so i would say spyware doctor has done you a favour by blocking it.But i would still scan for malware to see where the popup came from in the first place.

Ignore all pop ups from "anti virus" companies saying you need to download their software - you don't and they just want to fill your machine with spyware. The best thing to do next time you get a pop up saying you need to download anti virus software is to close it.
