Despite having Norton Internet Security, Ad-Aware & Spybot I keep getting the aformentioned pop-up. It's a real nuisance. Does anyone know of a software prog. that is guaranteed to rid my PC of it?

Acolyte & Gandalf. Yes I am pretty sure it is some form of Spyware/Trojan and thanks for your support. Do you know if Spophos (over 100 quid!!) or Ewido WILL get rid of it?

As GANDALF <|:-)> says,try Ewido its very good and is free without the realtime after the trial period.You get the whole package for around 15 days,then it reverts to the trial version.
If no joy with Ewido post back and we will try to find something that will rid this from your system.Do not go and buy anything just yet,there is enough freeware out there that may cure your problem.

Do you have the exact name of the possible trojan/spyware..preferably copy and paste the name into the response box if you have it.
This may help also: Trojanhunter click here
