My computer has been infected by Vundo!grb and HTML/FakeAV, according to my McAfee log. It keeps detecting them and "removing" them, but I still get pop-ups.

My problem is identical to giz831 post on 15-February 09. "I Get a lot of random pop-up ads, my computer performance has been slowed down tremendously
My Windows Security alerts/ automatic updates will not work or update no longer,"

My operating system is Windows XP.

Thank you for any advice.

Try running :
Advanced System Care & SpyBot Search and Destroy



Do updates on both after install and then scan

These are both free programs and are spyware free !

Forget to mention to also run malwarebytes :

had several instances of Vundo on my computer and these got rid them !

again don't forget to run updates on all three programs before you scan
