I have 2 puters, one running XP and the other on Vista, On the one running WXP we keep getting Browser & Security Antiadware licence renewal yet don't think I ever had a licence previously. Tried to reboot using the WXP CD but because it an early version CD and I have all the upgrades loaded the CD won't load as it say the CD version is 'older' than the puter version.
When the puter starts into windows I have about 10 sec before it comes up with licence screen then the screen freezes and mouse won't move after that.
I managed to get to try and start in safe mode (f1 on start) but couldn't get the 'up/down' keys to lift the hilight from normal mode to the safe mode/

Any other way to get it to safe mode? or get rid of the licence. I suspect it could be a hacker trying to get me to download my credit card to them.
I can get into regedit if I'm quick enough before it kicks in with this 'Browser & Security antiadware' screen.

I've just managed to get my virus scanner to run which I'm doing at the moment.

Any suggestions?

My suggestion is to assure yourself that the system is free of malware of any type...before doing anything else.

That means scan by a reliable, current AV program, as well as at least one scan by a reliable malware defense program (e.g., SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition).
