IE6 error message in IE6

  GRFT 06:29 07 Jan 2006

A Win 98se sytem of a friend of mine keeps displaying a popup in IE6 saying there are severe system errors which could damage the PC.

This is followed by another popup which advises to download Win Fix.

I have no other details but I know she has Zonealarm & Avast! installed.

Is it safe to download and install this Win Fix?

Any popup advising downloading software to cure a problem is a scam of some kind. Your friend should try scanning with AdAware click here (free), although from recent threads on this forum, I think A-squared Free is more likely to be needed click here.

Many thanks. I'll check that out as soon as I can.
