My boss's computer at work has some really nasty mal-ware on it. I just got this job, so I haven't been able to teach them any good computer upkeep habits, like not using IE for example. I'm not sure what kind of mal-ware this is exactly, but whatever it is is very nasty. IE windows pop-up on their own, taking him to a download site advertising something called System Defender. He's also getting warning bubbles saynig that he has a worm/virus called SpyWare.cyberlog-x. I've ran ad-aware and Norton, but neither scans picked up anything. I can't give any more details right now, but I was just wondering if anyone recognizes what this could be and how to remove it just by the few details I've given. Thanks in advance to any responses!
PS - hes using Windows XP, but it hasn't been updated in quite some time because apparently it crashes everytime he tries, but thats a problem for another day!
