    Hello TechGuy users,
    I am a new user to TechGuy after my friend had an encounter with... AWOLA.
    They said they were getting pop-ups even if not on the internet and their whole Compaq Windows XP Laptop is slowing down. I told them to get Spybot Search & Destroy and update to the newest version and they did. They scanned their whole computer and they destroyed some AWOLA software, but it is still there.

    What should they do?
    Thanks,
    Michael :confused:
