Hi!

I'm getting this pop ups all the time that says:

"Message from SECURITY from ALERT on date...
Your system registry is corrupted and needs to be cleaned immediately. To fix this problem go to ..."

or

"STOP! Windows has found 55 critical system errors"

or any other similar message

They all recommend to go to one of these pages:

correctreg.com
helpfixpc.com
wincleaner32.com
fixwin32.com
regfixit.com
regdocpro.com
myregfix.com

Could you please help me to get rid of them! What shall I do?

Thanks,
He

I'm getting the same problem - driving me mad.
How come none of my firewall, anti-virus or spyware software stop it?

It could be a misconfiguration, or you could have got it through a bundled .exe that you downloaded, simply follow the steps previously posted, and you will be on your way in no time..
