Hey everyone,
I keep on getting pop ups saying I should install IEAntivirus, when I click NO, a browser window opens up and takes me to a site called free-virus scan where another pop-up comes up for the IE antivirus :flowers: I haven't even installed the program so I don't know how I can just get rid of/remove the pop-ups. Does anyone know how I can fix this problem? I'm on windows XP home.

side note: I'm not experienced with the techie stuff involved with computers. For instance, I wouldn't know how to use those programs where you edit your computer through typing words, etc. :thumbsup: Is it possible to fix this without having to go through all of this?

Thanks in advance

Hi,
it seems you have got a virus an the only thing you haven't tp dp is to answer YES to this prompt.
Scan with your antivirus (you can find, if you haven't one installed on your computer, a free trial version on internet, i.e. www.aset.com) your computer and look to the result. It should suggest you to remove spyware and other virus.
I hope this can help you. Bye

PS You can also have alook on the home page at "Using Ad-Aware 6 SE to remove Spyware & Hijackers from Your Computer".

Hey Skuller,
thanks for the reply. I have tried to scan with AVG (AVG that's another story as well - I had just downloaded it 2 days ago and it won't update) and unfortunately it didn't pick up or show anything called IEAntivirus, but it did pick up a few other threats and removed them. I will try adAware, thanks!

Try the one i suggest you, it is light for the machine but require that you remove anyother antivirus already present.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
