I have recently had a couple of pop ups while browsing the web. The first one said that I may have porn downloaded on my computer and to use their software to clean it. When I tried to "X" out of it, it went to a different web site and tried to download. I immediately hit CAD and ended the process. Now a couple of days later I received a similar pop up, once again I hit CAD. Attached is the screen shot for the second pop up (didn't save one for the first), is this possibly something on my machine or something at a web site?
I am using XP with AVG Internet Security, I have had no recent threats found other than unwanted cookies.
Well, I couldn't figure out how to attach the screen shot but this is what it said:

Attention. If your computer is infected, you could suffer data, erratic behavior, pc freezes and crashes. Detect and remove viruses before they damage your computer. XP antivirus will perform a quick free scan. Do you want to install XP antivirus?

It then has a small box open with a url of: <http://xponline>

Mod Edit: Link disabled, to preclude possible infection.~ TMacK

You are probably infected with some sort of malware. Download SUPERantiSpyware from http://www.superantispyware.com , and run a full system scan and clean the infected files, restart. I had a similar problem and doing this helped me take care of it. Hope this helps.

if that fails you can also try a squared http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/free/
its free exe is

I suggest you download it, fully update the definitions, then reboot into safe mode and ask it to run a full deep scan ( I presume you have also run a full deep scan with the superantispyware program ?)
running these full deep scans may take some hours so be prepared
let us know what they find ?

also, one assumes you have SP2 installed and all your windows updates ARE up TO date?
