Hi to all members, two days ago I started receiving pop ups from XP Security 2012 Firewall Alert which I now know is a fake in order to get me to buy computer protection. The only short term bypass I have found is by pressing control, alt and delete but this only lasts for a few minutes before it reappears again. Please help !
