    Hi CRDC and welcome to Tenforums.

    Please describe what exactly was "telling you" you had spyware? Were you on a web site/browsing the web and a popup appeared?

    Can you try booting into Safe Mode and restoring your computer to a point in time before this infection?
    See Option #1 here:
    Safe Mode - Start Windows 10 in - Windows 10 Forums
