Has anyone had a spyware box pop up?

I keep getting this annoying "Microsoft 2009 , spyware detection scan" box pop up, and completely take over my computer. It's happened several times, and each time it's happened I've been on Cafemom! My sister had it happen to her computer too, and it completely destroyed it! I have Mcafee Security and all that good stuff with Comcast's high speed internet service, but it hasn't caught this particular thing, I'm concerned and going to call Comcast...anyone else experience this?

  • well the file is hidden in your computer somewhere you have to find it and delete every part of it. te file consists of something like this
    something like that so its hard to find let me see if i still have the thing i wrote down to delete it.
    it took me like 2 days to finish it though.
