    I keep getting this warning from windows update about spyware intrusions... i click it, and it opens up "spyware strike 2.5"

    I have no idea what that is. I have no memory downloading it... and it won't let be do anything except scan, so i deleted it...

    its still popping up, but not it directs me to the download site.

    microsoft antispyware isn't finding anything... so i dont know what the hell is wrong with this thing.

    The spyware guys are pretty clever with these new pop-ups. My neighbor just got nailed with that, and WinFixer. Both looked like legit MS pop-ups, but they were not. MS does not use pop-ups like that.
