Help peps
Just updated with a new computer running Win XP Pro.using PC-cillin 2000 antivrus. I keep getting unwanted popups not adverts but perverts
such as janita.us suwebcam.com etc.
The antivirus does it job 'no viruses found'.But it does not stop them appearing.
(not knowing a lot about the subject)
So my question is, what software can I use which will not interfer with the running of the antivirus to stop these popups.
PC-cillin have been asked and were not helpful.

If the popups have “Messenger Service” on the title bar, then you need to turn off the Windows Messenger service in Windows. To do that follow the instructions for your operating system, at this link. click here
