Has anyone had experience with ridding a computer of a persistant pop up box called modf.
The only option is to click OK and it won't go away.
Windows XP system belonging to a friend.
No idea how it got onto her system.
Thanks in advance

Looks like they have some spyware on their machine.

Download and run Spybot Search & Destroy (http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?page=download) and/or Ad-aware 6 (http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/#free). :)

Thanks for that
Its taken a bit of work but finally seems to hjave disappeared.
Adaware and spybot don't appear to help.
Beama your link helped alot more - it got a bit confusing but finally managed to get rid of the box by using quite a few peoples suggestions on the site you suggested.
The darn file renames itself every time you click OK on the articulice box!
So merely deleting it is not enough.
Done now!
