Hi My husband, when downloading something from the internet, seems to have also downloaded XP Antivirus Pro 2010 which we do not want. However, we can't seem to get rid of it, funny thing is it is only on my husband's "side" and not on mine. When he tries to connect to the internet, the Windows Security XP page comes up saying you cannot connect etc. etc. Messages continually come up in the bottom right hand corner of the screen saying things like "warning, you are being monitored" and "warning, someone is checking your computer" and "warning, someone is looking at your personal history" all sorts of similar messages like this.....I downloaded Kaspersky yesterday but even having this top notch security now on the computer doesn't appear to stop these continuous warning messages coming up. We cannot turn of "automatic updates" every time the page comes up and wants us to pay money to download the proper version.....scam or what? Any idea how we can get rid of it once and for all?

Hi Once again it's back, this time it has wiped out our internet connection. I did the Malware thing again and it seemed to show two nasties, Trojan psw 32 code 219 and worm win32 autorun. Both were quarantined etc. but even after doing this we are still unable to connect to the internet. I am currently working in safe mode with internet connection. we have also tried system restore but it won't let us restore it to a date when the blasted virus came through which was Saturday 13th. We have Kaspersky and after phoning them and they suggested we use Malware and me saying we had already done that, they said we would need to rebuild our computer ! Can anyone suggest anything else so we can get back to our internet connection? I have also spoken with our ISP and everything is ok at their end and said it is all at our end. Honey Chops
