  1. I recently updated xp security center after about a week it starts popping up windows saying I'm infected.It runs a scan and finds lots of things wrong except to fix them I need to buy the software. I cant access the internet without it shutting me out of it saying there's virus issues. I put in Mc Afee Anti virus full protection I ran a full scan. it says nothing is wrong. I cannot get rid of xp security center . its not in add/remove programs and no uninstalls. I can finally make the xp reminders stop if I have task manager on and keep ending a file fkt.exe . It keeps popping up when I reboot or connect to internet or run a program. It is driving me crazy. is there any body who can help ? another one that pops up is jqs.exe but I think thats a Java file.
    when I end process fkt.exe in the task manager the xp security reminder window dissappears, Then it will reappear again if I open Blender or connect to the web. I just got it last night so this is all I have observed so far.
    Please any help. Thank you.
