PC security lab popup RRS feed

  • Question

  • We bought a Celeron 1000 from some friends, it has XP2 on it. However when we connected it to the internet to update it something down loaded on the computer w/o our permission and now we have some kind of spyware that keeps giving us a PC security lab popup, even when we aren't connected to the internet. Everytime we try to do anything windows popup and we get all kinds of system alerts. We can't do anything on the computer. Is there anything we can do to get rid of it?
