    Hmm we would need more info. What exactly is giving you that error? Have you tried spybot, and adaware. If neither of those work, maybe you can run hijackthis and report back to us.

    If it's running at startup, find the path to the executable file....then (I don't personally recommend it) delete it, or use, as Aero said, Spybot, Adaware and Hijackthis. To me, they are my three most valuablet tools against spyware/adware and do me fine..haven't ever let me down

    BTW, I think that error is actually coming from the adware/spyware itself. I would also install a decent Antivirus program and run a full up to date scan to remove any trojans or stuff on there, as I have seen 'errors' like this in the past which try and get you to download more system-harming malware.

    Also..pick up a bullet proof firewall

    That comment sort of reminds me of a pop-up window from the internet...have you tried dissconecting your computer from the net and turning it on to see if its even localized to your machine?
