Something called Personal Antivirus keeps popping

Hi again. Took this off Beginners Site and cannot find it on here now so am trying again.
Adware called Personal Antivirus

Hi. I am still getting problems with this thing!!!! I tried Malware and it did not give any result. McAfee says it is a "safe" site. All well and good but I don't want it. I spend all evening muttering
"go away" and I am talking to the adware - duh!!! I am at my wit's end now. I think I am typing and then find that it has popped up again and I have to start again. AArrgg!!! There MUST be a way of getting rid of it. PC Advisor just came up and said it was "safe". I am baffled. All my scans say all is well and the PC works fine on Mozilla but Internet Explorer is "blocked". Any connection???? If anyone has any ideas I will try again. Thanks all.

( I will maybe ask FE to lock the other thread to avoid confusion )

From the other thread; I wrote;Of interest, does the XP computer have SP3 installed on it ?

Malwarebytes is a FREE program and does not require any money to use it

You say you have sought help elsewhere; can you show us where so we know what they have tried for you ?

Can we please see a scan report from the Malwarebytes scan to see what is going on ??

The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
