I'm running XP Pro with SP3 I have AVG and Reg cure installed when I opened up today AVG said System alert and app TODO wanted to access the net when I gave permission I kept getting a pop up from Norton and McAfee suggesting I use them to get rid of a virus on my computer but according to AVG the only virus is in my Vault, is this just advertising ? or have I a virus.

Just to clarify, are you saying you have AVG, Norton and McAfee anti virus all installed.

NO just AVG If I don't allow the TODO appliance I don't get any pop ups

hopefully they have cleaned the computer, I found the best one was "malwarebytes" it was very through and it found more than the first one I tried. hopefully it has stopped thepop ups.
