PCPrivacyCleaner trojan - HELP!!

  pcowli 18:11 26 Aug 2008

I am getting constant pop-ups for this rogue supposed spyware and can't get rid of them. Also a folder appears for the product in Program Files, amd I am unable to delete this folder by the normal method of right click then "delete". I have Mcafee Security Center installed, but this has not prevented the arrival of this unwelcome, and,I believe,potentially destructive guest. I am awaiting a technical "chat" from Mcafee but I would be very grateful for any help from all you out there. I am a regular PC user but am not prticularly proficient in the detail of these matters. System used is Windows XP.

Many thanks in anticipation.
