I have Windows XP and McAfee VirusScan. For a month now 2 persistent corner pop-ups from them will not go away. the are entitled " A Suspicious Script Has Been Detected" it goes on to say a file contains "..suspicious scripting activity and has been stopped. I have used all the options: - stop this script, - allow entire script this time, - find our more information, - continue what I was doing, none of which stops the pop-ups from reoccuring each time I turn on the computer.
What can I do to make these goe away permanently?

Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

If the script occurs each time and you don't believe that it's warranted or worthy of attention...just change AV programs.
