Virus i Cannot get rid of - AdwareRemover, SystemErrorFixer, and something else


I current have a computer that periodically pops up a mesage saying:
1. a AdwareRemover add saying my system is basically open to attack
2. a SystemErrorFixer dialog boxer saying i need to going to a site and get something to fix a problem.

I also have a application that maxises in over the top of the desktop with a red background and a virsus alert in the center of the image.

What i have done to fix this:
1. Ran Spybot and can up with a SmithFraud item and removed this, but it keeps coming back even if i do that in safe mode
2. Ran adware and removed anything it found
3. Ran avast and found nothing
