I am looking for guidence from a PC Tech who is expierenced in removing VIRUSES such as the one I happen to have gotten. I am using Windows XP 2003! It is a pop up in the right bottom corner saying: Warning! You have a security problem! The pop ups comes constantly, however I can still operate my PC, it just runs very slow. The pop ups are trying to sell me antivirus protection 2009 and sometimes you can hear ads and music playing as well. I am trying to fix this with the help of a pro... Please advise...

Thank you
Chuck

I'm sorry but I don't see any help for me there! Am I missing something? Can someone walk me through the deletion process? Can someone advise on Combo Fix, is that an option...

You should make a post in the forum that the link Louis gave you sent you to. That is the correct forum for getting help in removing viruses. You should not use ComboFix unless you are directed to do so by someone from that forum and are using it under their guidance as the use of ComboFix without proper guidance could render your computer useless.

Since a post was made in the proper forum: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/213931/warning-you-have-a-security-problem-pease-help/
And receiving help there, this topic is closed.
