I've been having bubbles from SECURITYTOOLS asking me to register with them.
since I don't want to, I recieve messages on my screen every minutes.
and every 30 mn, my computer is shut down, just like that. Then, I have a blue screen, and I can see that the virus' name is SPCMDCon.sys.
and it restarts on its own.
what can I do?

    Run Combofix and follow its instructions carefully.
    Rename Combofix prior to saving to desktop to fc.exe.
    When completed attach its logfile here

    Also scan with malwarebytes

    I would also recommend running an antiroot kit as well as your other applications.  Sophos makes a good one:

    thanks to Optoma and MagicFarmer.
    I've try the websites you gave me.
    but when it comes to the "run-don't run" part, the bubbles open again and nothing happens.
    Do you have a stronger solution please?
    this virus is very harmful!

    Take your hard drive out and put it in another system as a secondary drive and run the above mentioned tools.

    Also, you can use to create a bootable CD with lots of tools to assist you. Look at the add-ons to see which ones you may want to include on the CD.
