few friends and decided to try playing a word game. Suddenly I received a pop-up about viruses detected and that
I needed to removed immediately. After attempting to close the windows several times, I googled this WinPC and
found that it was some type of spyware. I found out how to stop the pop-ups by using Task Manager to end the
Winav process however I'm uncomfortable trying to do anything else to remove until I can get help. My laptop runs
on Windows XP and it has Norton Antivirus.
Some of the pop-ups are "Update Available" WinPC Antivirus has detected that new database is available. Would you like to download and install update now? Installation is recommended" When I choose "remind later" a new window appears from "Windows Security Center" showing the "Virus Protection" and as I close this window a new "Critical Warning Alert" with a "activate now" button appears.
