When I am remotely connected to my employer's network on my laptop (via VPN), I get the pop-ups with all the scare tactics and warnings of being infected with a virus and told that I need to purchase the Advanced PC Shield 2012. I have not done so. My laptop is fine when operated stand alone, it is only when I connect to the company server. I talked with the Administrator at work, he tells me that no one else has the problem, therefore it is my computer.

I have run the Norton full system scan and the additional scan option "if you feel you are still infected". Both came back clean. I also ran the Micorosoft scan for spyware/malware and it came back clean. They recommended that I present my problem to you and see what you think, whether I should go ahead and run a malware removal anyway, but that I should do it assisted. They said if I run it and still have it when I connect, then it has to be my employer's problem. It doesn't make sense though, if that is the case, why I am the only one experiencing it...and the Administrator doesn't seem to be interested in doing anything about it under those circumstances. So then what?

My operating system is Windows XP w/SP3.
