  1. I have a virus protection orogram - SVG anti virus. However, Im not that up to date with these pop up viruses etc. Can you point me to a good FAQ on this side of adware/virus protection?

    yes.
    top of the forum marked as Sticky - How To Remove Begintosearch/Coolwebsearch. use all the tools in there, plus AVG antivirus, and a half decent firewall such as Zone alarm or Sygate Personal Firewall, and you can't go wrong.

    The tools in that thread aren't just for removing nasties. You should run Spybot and Ad-aware scans every now and again as a matter of course.
