Default Need help with this virus...

Gday everyone

Ok, so I have a virus on my PC... Ad-aware, Spy-Bot and AVG will not remove it.
Basically, I have no idea what the virus does, however, if you use Windows XP you will notice in the taskbar that a Windows flag sits itself over the top of an Earth icon reminding you when its ready to install updates.
Well with this virus, that icon flashes between itself and a red and white X icon.

If you have had this virus you will know what I am talking about, if you haven't then when you get it you will know what I am talking about ehe. It is confusing...

Anyway, if anyone knows how to get rid of it, let me know... Smile

Cheers.

Update: I am getting a firetruck load of pop-up ads now... dang...

Nevermind.
Found out that a program called SpyAxe is actually displaying a fake message and that they are just trying to get you to purchase their software.
Here is a URL if anyone else in the future needs to remove SpyAxe

Done.
