I've witnessed the most annoying popups on my computer and the thing is that it has happend to me before but I completely forgot how to get rid of it unfortunetely.
I woke today and turned on my pc as usual but on the desktop there was three icons which I cannot even uninstall, there just there. These three icons are:

1. Error Cleaner
2. Spyware & Protection
3. Privacy Protector

These three icons keep showing for me to download the software and install it and scan it! But the thing is I don't want to have these three icons on my desktop because there annoying and I cannot browes my the interent freely becuse the popups keep shpwing up like every second. I use firefox and I'm geting IE 7 popups as well. I'm also getting messages that my computer has been infected of spyware and etc.

I've allready scanned my pc by Error Expert software and it says my computer is secure. I also got Norton on my pc running and that says it's secure as well. So these three icons must be fake or something. But most of all I would really like to know how there got installed on my deskop which I can't even uninstall them in the controll pannel/add & remove.

NOTE: I'm also getting an alert symbol on the taskbar which looks like a red cross that keeps flasshing for about one munite and then dissapears, and pops up again after a short while.

So if anyone could please help me resolve this issue I'm having, I would appreciate it very much!

Thank you.
