I'm getting a message that replaced my wallpaper.

  1. I'm getting a message on my computer that replaced my entire wallpaper. The message says:
    "Warning! Spyware detected on your computer! Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer."
    Then it gives a link of the top spyware removers to download. I found out I had an outdated version of norton so instead of downloading any of the versions displayed through the ling on the message I just renewed norton and ran that for viruses. It detected one or two theats and removed them but the message remains. how do i get rid of the message? is my computer really infected? It wont let me change the wallpaper through the control panel. the computer seems to be running fine otherwise but i realize that that doesn't necessarily mean it's safe. I should also note that I have microsoft antispyware and run the scan regularly. Please help.
