Exclamation Virus on WI

Hey. I've been getting a virus that attempted to hack on to my cpu.
It says 'Warning, your comuter contains signs of virusis, virus database will run a quick scan' then no matter what I press it starts scanning my computer!!! It tells me I have this many virusis, and that you need to download this program to get rid of them! EVEN IF I hit the X button! Has anyone else seen this virus?

Yes, I get that too on WI. It is a 're-direct' type ad, not a virus, but you might get one if you click on anything.

CTRL-ALT-DELETE so you can get the 'task manager' control box, shut down the page that way. Don't click on anything on the Online Scan page. Use task manager only. That is what I do

I get it like 1 in 10 times when loading a WI page.

About 10 minutes ago, I was booted off WI, and Internet Explorer, with the message 'Fake Antivirus Spyware detected, High risk'. It was blocked by Norton.
