To the experts of GeeksToGo...
I write this post on behalf of my father who finally upgraded to SP@ on his XP Pro system. Before and now after the upgrade and a big antivirus/adware software upgrade he still is getting pop ups for several things. The most insistent and scariest is a program that installs itself as a shortcut and in the start menu called Videozapping - after the pop-up appears the desktop icon appears and no matter how many times we quarantine or delete it, it keeps coming back. Another that has increased post SP2 install is WinAntiSPyware, a pop-up which invites you, ironicall, to get scanned for spyware (now that they hacked in and infected you), it appears often in Google searches, but also on Earthlink pages, and others. We are high speed cable subscribers with a Linksys WRT54g wireless network. This PC is connected via ethernet to the router. It has Symantec corporate level antivirus scanning - at least now since we opted to uninstall Earthlink Protection Center - not powerful enough. And we also installed the BETA version of Microsoft Ant-Spyware, we also have AdAware 6 se, Counter-SPY (which is active along with MAS(beta)), CWShredder, Spybot, and Hijackthis...pheww. Anyhow it would be greatly appreciated if anyone could help us with this annoyance, and possible danger to the network - Thank you - ML23.

System: Cyperpower Pentium 4 2.2 Ghz/ 1024 MB Ram/
Windows XP Professional with SP@ all updates
