On a Dell Inspirion 5100 Laptop running Windows XP Pro, protected with McAfee VirusScan Enterprise... all current dats, all current Windows updates... there were no problems until accessing a political bulletinboard/chat.  Immediately after, the pop-ups started.  Ran the latest version of SPYBOT... removed everything except DSO Exploit (of course) now cannot load the windows update website... on the first page, even before it begins to search for updates I receive an ERROR ON PAGE (bottom left corner of the screen), when I double-click on the error it give details:

LINE:37
CHAR: 2
ERROR: PERMISSION DENIED
CODE: 0
URL: HTTP://V5.WINDOWSUPDATE.MICROSOFT.COM.V5CONSUMER/SPLASH.ASPX?

What would cause the above error?  Internet Explorer just wants to error now... ran all the utilities of Norton Systemsworks, which repaired all but 2 of 117 items, but still even if I can get on the Internet it is pop-up after pop-up.

Do you have any suggestions?  I need some quick help :)

Thank you!
