Virus popups

  Farleyjim 20:07 06 Sep 2004

My friend has asked me to sort out why he keeps getting popup messages(inviting him to click on OK)to go to a web page called "". The address frequently changes but te format seems to stay the same. I've told him on no account to open them but to click the page OFF with the X. He is running Norton System Works 2003 on Windows 2000. He has done a virus check with Norton which fails to turn up anything. I assume it's one of those nuisance messages but it appears to be getting more and more frequent. How do we stop them coming?
