Tip

Learn the name of your anti-virus program


Its important to know the name of your anti-virus program, because on the web there are spyware pop ups that trick you to download their antivirus. I trust AVG, Avira, or Rising anti-virus programs. Avira is my favorite and I recommend you try that one.

Mcafee legal instalation pops up and says trojan alert false ,thenxp anti virus pops up and says over 1000 viruses found .also i cant remove both pop ups hope you can help evelyn aged 72


This almost sounds like you have a maleware infection.
It almost sounds like the one that has been going around that claims to be Windows XP antivirus and that it found 450+ spyware infections (there is no such thing built into Windows XP).

I would suggest running SpyBot or Hyjack This to find out if you do have a malware infection.
