  1. hi,
    i recently installed win-xp on my machine. after installation (a few days later). i keep getting these strange pop ups that looks like coming from windoes:
    "your system is infected. visit" or or" or the last message says that windows will shut down in 30 seconds, and shuts my system down. is there anyway i can get rid of this? is this coming from windows? or ms-new anti spy? any help would be appreciated.

    It's spyware/trojan. Do you have Spybot search and destroy? Do a goole search for Spybot (freeware) Or you can do a HiJackThis scan READ instructions here: and post and hopefully RBS will take a look when he gets a chance. (it can be done by yourself if you read carefully).

    Do an online scan at Trend.
    Download and install Ewido.
