Have you tried Symantec's Online Security Response? Symantec Security Check. I have a brain fart, but Iknow there are other sites too that can scan.

Have you tried Spybot? The home of Spybot-S&D!.

I am curious have you downloaded anything lately? because that is the most common way you will get a virus.
Also boot in safe mode turn off system restore then run you virus scanners and the hijack this but like I said make sure you turn off system restore or what will happen is that if and when you get rid of the virus( if it is actually a virus) it will still be on your computer in the system restore anti virus and other programs usually don't scan you system restore area

Whatever you do, do not click on the second "system error" box. It just screams "bogus"!

Also try trendmicro housecall online-just click on the free version. This is a very powerful scanner with the ability to remove nasties.
