  molby5 21:20 30 Jan 07

Hi there,

I have just rebooted by PC from scratch and ever since when I am connected to the internet - every 5 minutes or so I get a pop up telling me to get registry cleaner or help fix pc things - anybody got any ideas on why - i am reluctant to go to these websites and downlaod the software they are telling me to as they are not always the same website to go to

If your using XP and not patched to SP2 then try running "Shoot the Messenger" click here to switch off Windows Messenger.

If the popups also have an associated icon in the Taskbar you may have a Spyaxe/Smitfraud variant rogue program onboard click here
