Just today I was on the internet and all of the sudden Windows Security Center pops up. As soon as that opens another window opens with the title XP Anti-Spyware, then it looks like it's scanning your computer finding all these Trojans. If you close it it just comes back. As soon as you get on the internet the home page will come up but as soon as you go to do anything it goes right into an XP Anti-Spyware Alert. For a while now we have been having a window that just keeeps popping back up everytime you close it and that one is a Solution Center. It keeps asking for a disc.
Any help would be great appreicated.

Thanks

Matt

Take a look here: Remove XP Anti-Spyware 2011, Vista Security 2011, and Win 7 Internet Security 2011 (Uninstall Guide) and that particular breed of malware goes by 30+ other names as well.

I downloaded the software that was at that link and ran a full scan over night and it said that it didn't find any malicious software but the anti spy-ware is still coming up.
Any other ideas?

Thanks

Matt

What software did you download? Did you download it from a clean computer per the instructions?
