Pop Ups and Annoying going's on...

  russmini 16:16 29 Dec 2007

Ok, the other day i received a file through MSN from a 'friend'. Unfortunatly as soon as i clicked to accept, Kaspersky AV went off that there was a Virus, No Probs really, got that sorted because of the AV.
But now... I keep having Pop Ups and some strange Lock Ups have happened as well.
I run Ad-Aware and Spybot and Spyware Blaster. They seem to have got rid of stuff but not this. They're Pop Ups from lots of various Co's. And i would say Legit Co's as well. But i also have what i think is a Spoof of Windows Secrity Centre keep popping up. the reason why i say Spoof is cause it doesn't look/feel right and it Always finds 45 Threats !!!!

Thanks in Advance

If Superantispyware does not remove the bogus/fake Antispyware,

Download SmitfrauFix and follow the instructions,

Tried SuperAntiSpyware. It found and got rid of (i presume) 38 items.

Unfortunatly, just come back on-line and it has not worked, so i will now try the next offered advice.

Thanks so far guys
