When I was surfing the internet and playing games on the internet random pop up came up...

NOTICE: You have been to an adult site and it is recommanded that yo ushould scan with the spyware or adware to delete it blah blah blah click YES or NO

and

NOTICE: If your computer has errors in the registry data base on file system it could cause unpredictable or erratic behavior, freezes and crashes

Would you like to install system doctor to check your computer for free? Click, YES or NO

What are these pop ups? This is making me worry and scared... Do I have viruses on my computer or what?

It sounds like a randon pop-up and note to worry about, just install a pop up blocker and it should be fine, or enable the one in Internet Explorer 7 if you have it. If you get them in a little balloon on the bottom right of your screen try this. Otherwise dont let them bother you.

What can work well is to make sure you know what they are and delete them in safe mode.

Go to Start/Run/Msconfig and hit return. Go to the startup tab and Disable all. When you get the prompt for restart let it restart.

Once its restarted, Ctrl Alt and Delete to get the Task Manager, go to Processes and list them by name. Make a note of the ones next to your login name, you should only have 3, ctfmon.exe, explorer.exe and taskmgr.exe.

Write the names of any others. Turn iff your pc and turn back on pressing F5 to start in safe mode. Once its on, login as Administrator and wait for it to start properly. Go to Start/Search and one at a time search for the names of the programs you wrote down earlier. Make a note of where they are ie, System 32 etc. (Include hidden files in your search)

Locate the rogue programs and delete them. Then go into Local Disc/Documents and Settings/Your login name. Once in there delete the contents of your Temp folder and Temporary Internet Folder.

Go back twice Till you see Program Files, Windows etc and go into Windows. Delete the contents of the Prefetch Folder.

Run Spybot, AVG and Adaware whilst in safe mode.

All free to download.

Once you think you're done, restart your pc, then scan again.

Hopefully the pop-ups have gone and you wont be prompted to download anything.

Good luck.

Also another good program is HiJackThis

to remove anything that hijacks your browsers and displays all crap that appears like popups.

Just a note: if using HiJackThis, a moderate understanding of what you are removing is highly recommended. For log analysis, I suggest this: HiJackThis! Log auto analyzer V2

This guy's Spybot report is telling us that it's pretty likely that he does indeed have spyware.

So, run spyware, and use its spyware removal tools. And then download and run (it's free, just google the names) Adaware.

Piece of advice for the future, have a firewall before going to another porn site. Preferably the free McAfee Personal Firewall Plus.
