Malware keeps popping up on my screen. To get into Internet Explorer I have to click on and then delete because Malware keeps coming up on the screen. I have to keep on clicking onto Internet Explorer...


You need a decent antivirus program to tackle this.

if its already infected your pc, you have following option:

save all docs to external hdd or cd/dvd, and run recovery on pc/laptop. (back to original factory settings)

or take out hdd, attach it to another pc / laptop which is not infected and run virus scan on the infected hdd. (you will require appropriate SATA / IDE /USB connector cables for this process).

Let me know how you get on!

I had Norton Internet Security 2009 installed in my computer in August, 2009, and I am getting pop ups that my subscription is running out in 4 days.


Did you purchase the Norton Internet Security? If yes, then you need to verify with Symantec (Developer of Norton) if their program is a one-time purchase only or needs to get renewed every month or two.

Or there could be a possibility that you just need a new product code. Ask them if they could provide you one for free. Check the link below and you would be redirected to the Norton Web site:
