Download AVG Free and AVG Antispyware Free fom this site:

Install both and run a Full System scan with each (they can be set going at the same time). This will probably take an hour or two so be patient.

Sounds like your computer has a Trojan - do not send money to the Ultimate Cleaner site as this is probably a case of FRAUD.

Good luck.

I am using Internet Explorer 8 and just recently, Windows Installer pops up only on random web pages that I open. I just click cancel and it finally goes away. I have Windows XP. Any suggestions?

There are 2 solutions to get rid of this issue.

2. Click "Start" and click Run
In the Small window type "msiexec /regserver" (Without Quotes) then press "Enter" or Press OK button. You will not see anything happen during this process.

And then,

In the Small window type "Services.msc" ( without Quotes ) and hit Enter key or Press OK.

Hi. This could be virus issue on your computer. Computer wont receive pop ups from the time you boot up your computer unless you will go to internet explorer and go to a website that ha a pop up. try to run your anti virus first to check for possible virus intrusion.

Have a good one!

Pop up saying you have a virus, i try to go online, or into properties and it keep saying, wmiadap.exe is infected. It always pop up to buy antivirus software.

It seems as if you have downloaded a spyware program such as a wallpaper which has caused you to have a fake antivirus 2009 running. Make an Ultimate Boot CD and run every AV tool and spyware/malware that was on the CD. After running all the tools install your XP SP2 CD to repair the installation Download and run hijack this to see if still have the virus lurking on the computer.
