Try downloading and running Superantispyware that gets rid of most problems.Pop ups have any particular name.

one of pop ups says
(would you like to install system error fixer),
another says (system upgrade 45% security tool was not installed do you want to install it)
have checked auto updates when i click start a message says could not start auto updates service on local computer error 1058
thanks kirriejim

not a question of being upset it is good for all members to get an explanation on what solved a particular problem that way everyone learns and may be able to apply the solution to a problem they may have.
