Virus Warning

Hi all, in the last couple of days I have been getting a pop up balloon with a warning message saying I have a CRITICAL SYSTEM ERROR, when I click on the ballon it directs me to site. I dont believe I have any viruses, as I've done a scan using AVG, ADaware, Spybot Search and Destroy, and Spyware Blaster. Could anyone tell me how to get rid of this pop up ballon.
Thanks in advance for any help.

After first cleaning out all the rubbish with SpyBot, Adaware, A2, Ewido & AVG then cleaning up with Reg Mechanic & RegXP I tried a system resore.

Lo and behold it worked !

Saved going through a lengthy process which obviously still works fine.
