Vista antispyware 2012

I have Mcaffee virus protection installed, running, and up to date.  I woke up this morning and I am getting these bogus dialog boxes saying that Vista antispyware 2012 has detected all these various here to remove or register, etc.  Of course, I recognize this as a bogus spyware in itself.  However, it keeps popping up every 5 minutes or so.  My McAffee is not catching and removing it.  What do it do?
