I can't get rid of 'AV System Care' and its pop-ups

Unread postby rukar » August 31st, 2007, 5:16 pm

Dear friends

I have a Toshiba A100 Series laptop with the Windows XP Media Centre Edition operating system. I also have VirusScan anti-virus software running on the computer.

Initially, I started getting pop-ups for strange advertisements, and then shortly thereafter a "WARNING" sign came up that said that my computer might be "at risk." It then asked if I wanted to run AVSystemCare software to detect problems. I clicked on Cancel, but it then supposedly run some type of virus scan, which said I have numerous problems.

One of the specific pop-ups says: "NOTICE: if your computer is infected, you could suffer data loss, erratic PC behavior, PC freezes and crashes. Detect and remove viruses before they activate themselves on your PC to prevent all these problems. Do you want to install AVSystemCare to scan your PC for malware now? (Recommended)"

Since then the above message comes up every time I use Internet Explorer and I keep getting pop-ups all the time until eventually Internet Explorer crashes. In addition, I've had to uninstall E-mule from my computer because it kept crashing as well.

What can I do to get rid of this thing?

Thank you for your help.
