Long Version - About 4 weeks ago my Laptop, broke down due to lighten'. the modem was fried so of it went to get fixed. I just received it back yesterday evening. My laptop is an early 2002 model (Toshiba Satellite 3000)so does not come out of the box with SP1, I didn't have a copy of SP1 on disc so got it off my mate along with the blaster worm hotfix. After all my software was installed I connected to my usual ISP to the net via A-O-(awful)-L. After downloading a further 38 hotfixs from windows update I keep getting these pop-ups (see above) which aren't website based pop-up that you would get from angelfire or other such free webspace providers.
Can anyone please help, also I can't right click on my aol connection to view properties and enable the firewall that comes with XP Don't know why? The virus software that I use is AVG 7 which is also fully updated. i also have Ad-aware 6. PLEASE HELP ME!!
Cheers Djohn, I hope that done that hope it works, what I can't understand is that website was dated june and I never came across this before or had to do some thing similar how long has this been around anyway? Ps: thanks for the quick reply, hopefully I can relax now.
