Running slow pop ups all the time


You more than likely have an infection. The problem is, removing an infection is a lot easier said than done. While your computer is running, so is the virus. And it would be like attempting to delete a picture, while you're looking at the picture. The computer will yell at you and tell you the file is in use. There are tons of guides on the internet as to how to easily remove a virus, but I will give you the short of it. If you don't have any antivirus active protection; Microsoft Security Essentials is free and pretty good. Download and install that. MalwareBytes and Spybot S&D (Search and destroy) are both fantastic at virus removal, but don't have active protection.
Download the three of these, install them, then restart your computer. As it is turning on, press F8 and then navigate to Safe Mode. Run all three scanners (not at the same time, and you might have to restart in between) and your computer should be much better off if this was the case. If this doesn't do much for your situation, at least you now have active antivirus protection.
Lastly you need to be VERY careful about the popups. Many of them advertise that your computer is infected and to buy "their" antivirus software. The problem is, that software is a scam and you will lose your money. And remember when you have big issues like running slow with popups all the time, you can always take it to a local tech shop if you're not comfortable with doing the work yourself. However this kind of repair can cost up to about $200.

How to tell your antivirus is fake?


Most of time, you use search Engine like Bing, Google, or Yahoo, and several links from top 10 of search results take you to another link and once you click on that link, ooops you receive pop up saying your system has infected. It will scan your system without of permission, and ask you to pay for activation for antivirus software. Use the following guideline to identity the fake one.
The antivirus that installed itself and proceed to scan is not a real one
If you are remind to pay for activation, it is fake
Real antivirus will scan your system, and download the latest definition file on scheduled. Real one won't bother you. On the other hand, fake one used annoying alerts to alert you.
Keep these guidelines in mind to identify the fake and not paying for any activation.

I keep getting a virus alert and when I ask to remove viruses it brings me to a page to buy virus protection. I already have virus protection on Windows. What can I do to resolve this annoying problem...


You are infected with a Trojan or Malware. The pop-ups are bogus.. You are only infected with the product they are trying to sell you. What is the name of the Virus Protection they are trying to sell you? First thing to do is restart your computer in Safe Mode and run all your security scans. See it they find the culprit.If not post back,
