Re: How do i know what security I have on my laptop?

Windows XP:

Just check "Security Center" in Control Panel and Click the virus protection to know what AV you are using.


Windows Vista:

In Control Panel-> Security-> Scurity Center


Windows 7:

In Control Panel-> System And Security-> Action Center-> Security


For the popup problem:

I think you are using a free or expired Antivirus. Please uninstall and just use a free AV(MSE/Avira) or paid(Trend Micro/Bitdefender/Pc Tools) for better protection.
