As this Forum and the experts have been helpful in the past, I've decided to seek some help once again.
Firstly, my computer is very slow. I don't even have that much files or programs running but each time I use my computer it seems to get slower and slower. I don't know if this is attributed to the recent problems I have been experiencing but it could be interrelated.
Secondly, I am experiencing extremely frequent pop-ups from something called XP Security Tool. I don't even remember downloading this software?! The messages pop-up every few seconds, possibly with the view to enticing me to purchase some software. The messages take up things like ''Security Breach'', ''Threats Detected'', ''System Integrity Threats'', ''Virus Alerts'', ''Malware Intrusion!'', ''Tracking software found!'', ''Severe System Damage'' among others. It also seems to complicate matters for Windows Defender and a lot of my other programs which are no longer opening.
