First, the good part is I have NOT downloaded anything, but the bad part is I have a Dell laptop running Windows XP Pro which recently has been inundated with dire warnings from both AntVirus 2009 and also WinDefender. I also have these huge page popups that will just appear at anytime advertising everything you can imagine on every site I visit. Although I have not downloaded anything, I cannot figure out how so stop both these warnings and the popups.
Not sure how I picked up these things since I'm usually very careful and no one else uses my computer. I have gone to a game site recently that I was not that familiar with so I suspect that may be where I got into trouble.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you so much.
