This happened just 2 days ago. On Saturday I installed a new copy of Windows XP. It was a brand new copy and I put it on a brand new hard drive for the purpose of software testing. I finished the install and applied the drivers. I was behind a router which acts as a firewall. I opened the IE browser and went to a favorite site. I read the forums and exactly 23 minutes after the install I was receiving AV2009 popups. Itâ€™s scare ware. It told me I was infected and needed to download their program to remove the threat. I couldnâ€™t believe it. I didnâ€™t even have an email client installed, no Instant Messenger.
