Has any one had this pop up on their screen? I can't seem to get rid of it:crash:
XP is an operating system, not a virus program.

"XP Antivirus 2008 is one of the latest counterfeit antispyware that devastates the world wide web. XP Antivirus 2008 usually come up after you installed a video codec that come with Trojan, malware and virus. XP Antivirus 2008 normally generates fake and misleading system popup error messages so end-users will be tricked into purchase XP Antivirus 2008."

Do you use an anti-virus program???

Make sure you have a good anti-virus that is updated regularly, a good fire wall and be sure that all of the latest MS updates are installed.
I never have a problem.

But, it's hard to stop some of the spyware out there with some of the download programs. If you want free this or that (I won't say what here), thats is what is going to happen.
