Random popups, "Online Security Guide" and "Security Troubleshooting"

Ive been getting random popups and my homepage has been reset to http://www.securitynetpage.com/. I also had two programs installed onto my desktop, Online Security Guide" and "Security Troubleshooting". I also have a yellow triangle sign in the lower right hand portion of my screen that says something about a system alert: popups. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

====================================================================================================

You have no Service Packs installed for either Windows XP or Internet Explorer. Please follow the instructions I have listed below for getting at least Service Pack 1a for both before we can proceed to help clean your PC. Thanks a lot.

IMPORTANT!:

Before we can proceed any further, please visit the Microsoft's Windows Update Page and install ALL Critical Updates for your system (except service pack 2 [SP2]). SP2 should only be installed on a fully disinfected system. At the minimum install at least SP1a for both XP and IE6. Without these updates your system is wide open to re-infection and we are both wasting our efforts to clean your system. After we have completed your clean-up, we will have you return to the Windows Update page and install SP2. We will also then advise you on how to better protect yourself online.

Please apply those updates BEFORE posting your next log. It is this forum's policy to stop the disinfection process until these basic updates are done. If during the updating process you get a message that your product key is invalid ....then you may not have a legitimate copy of Windows XP. Unfortunately it’s also this forums policy that we only address users with a legal copy of Windows XP.... therefore if you can not update Windows XP to SP1 we must stop the cleansing process here.

Thank you for your cooperation.

**Note** If you're having trouble locating the service pack SP1a here is a direct Link to download it from.


====================================================================================================

NO ANTIVIRUS INSTALLED!

No AntiVirus Onboard

I see no evidence of an AntiVirus program on your system. This must be resolved. Here are two very good free Antivirus products which are available:Select one of these, or another of your choice. Download, install, update definitions, and run a full system scan.
