When my computer starts up an automatic pop up window stating I need to purchase spy/spam prevention and removal program through "XP Alert" comes up. It will not let me go on the internet to download a removal program. Anyone encounter this before and figure out how to get past the pop ups?

Hello, this may not be exactly yours as perhaps we have the wrong name. The symtoms are similar enough that I think we will get to run a scan.
So follow ALL steps in the Automated Removal Instructions from our guide here>> How to remove XP Security Tool 2010

After your done post the scan log... The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.

Ask any questions and tell me how it is runnning now.

@ handbanana

Please read this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/273628/combofix-usage-questions-help-look-here/ which discusses the use of ComboFix.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at step 6.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Since you have run ComboFix, please include the ComboFix log in the new topic.

If you cannot produce any of the other logs, then please create the new topic anyway, include the information that you were unable to produce the other logs and why and include the ComboFix log along with a description of your computer issues.
