Starting yesterday, I have been bombarded by incessant pop-ups trying to get me to go to Windows Antivirus 2009, XP online spyware test, and a variety of security alerts showing up in my taskbar and as pop-ups. They've redirected my homepage to "http://homepageonweb.com/security/xp/"
no matter how many times I rewrite into the home page field in Internet Options. I have run a full updated Avast viral scan and a new download of Lavasoft's Ad-Aware, but cannot get the very real appearing XP Spyware Ads and alerts to stop. I can't tell what level of infestation this is. I am running Windows XP with the recent Service Pack 3 update on an Avefernceeratec Laptop with Avast viral protection (and daily updates).
Any suggestions and references appreciated.
