    I am getting a message telling me that my computer is infected! Windows had
    detected spyware infection. Windows will now download and install the most
    up-to-date antispyware for you.
    If I click on it it wants to download Awola Antispyware 6.0. Is this a
    legitimate message?

    I am getting the same message. I googled "awola", the company that wanted to
    eliminate the spyware & found that it is fraudulent. This is not a message
    from microsoft. The tips to remove it suggested the removal process might
    destroy my computer if I did not use another anti spyware device. Hence,
    like you, I'm trying to find a legitimate answer to get rid of this pop up
    that occurs every 10 seconds!

    After the software is updated, it is suggested scanning the system in Safe
    How do you boot to Safe Mode?
    By pressing/tabbing F8 (or F5 on some keyboards) during re-boot.
    click onto Start==>Run, type "msconfig" (without quotation marks), click
    OK. Then click onto BOOT.INI tab and 'check' /SAFEBOOT then OK and click
    Restart. To go back to Normal Mode, you must access the System
    Configuration utility again and click the General tab then click/check the
    radio button 'Normal Startup'- load all device drivers and services'.
