I am not very good with computers, I do not have a clue what I'm doing, so I'm hoping I can describe my problem well enough to be able to get some help because this is making me nuts.
Every 30-45 seconds I get a pop up on my screen telling me that "Application Cannot be executed. The file wuauclt.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?" The first time I encountered this this problem was after something popped up saying it was doing a virus scan. This isn't my computer, it belongs to my ex husband who is stationed in Japan right now and I've only had it for a month. When the scan popped up it asked me if I wanted delete certain things, I clicked no, because I was going to ask him first and then do it at a later time if it was something he did in fact have installed on the computer. Next thing I know my computer went nuts. First it's the security warning every 30 seconds, then it pops up with something telling me to buy anti virus software from windows something rather... then on occasion it pops up with a porn site, and an ad for viagra... I don't know what to do. I can't do anything on this computer right now and I'm worried he's going to think I broke it and get mad at me. PLEASE help?

I just thought I'd add an update on my computer. I turned it off for a couple of days because I was scared to use it. I turned it back on last night, and for some reason or another, it's totally fine. I've had it on all day and not a single pop up. I'm not sure what happened, I'm calling it a miracle lol, the computer healed it's self. But everything is fine with it now.
