Error code 0x00000050

My computer keeps shutting off and turning back on with a blue screen that gives me an error code 0X00000050. I can go into safe mode and my screensavers is always changed to a red box that says "You Have Spyware on your Computer". Both of these things started happeniong at the same time yesterday. Anyone know what's wrong?

Seems like you've picked up a virus.
The following link has detailed instructions on removing it.

After that you should run a complete virus scan, then run hijackthis and post the log in the cyber safety forum. They'll take a look at it over there to make sure your system is clean.
