My WinXP Pro is telling me that I have a Virus, [email protected]
Spyware blaster,Spybot, nor Ad-Aware will find it, any suggestions please.

TIA

"My WinXP Pro is telling me that I have a Virus"

How is windows telling you?

Do you have Anti Virus installed?

The fact that swapper said "Windows is telling me i have a virus" leads me to suspect it is a fake message (see my link) and it's a trick to get you to install some other Malware.

Link obviously too long
Go to click here (symantec site) and navigate to their avcenter and search for [email protected] virus
