The problem happens with AVAST and with AVG and it is connected to the last security patch that Microsoft added to WIN XP !! after the ransomware attack
Microsoft is to be blamed !!!

I uninstalled the KB 4012598 on the XP and the problem is gone
Microsoft is to be blamed for lousy job

I have just been using my old PC with MS Windows XP Pro installed - last update 4/8/2014.  I have been unable to carry out a scan or a cleanup because half way through I got the above error messages which stopped the cleanup  or scan and unable to remove it or find a password that works.

I checked the updates and did not have KB 4012598 anyway.  All my updates starting with KB then figure 2........ or 9..........

Any other ideas? Would it be a microsoft password and how do you find/change that password? :-\ :-\

Anyone having this pop-up problem in Windows XP with Avast, try this:

Avast > Settings > Components > SafePrice Browser Extension:  Uninstall (you can always reinstall it here too)

These seems to have worked for me.

Otherwise, try:
Avast > Settings > Components > Wi-Fi Inspector:  Uninstall (you can always reinstall it here too)

Report back on your results  :)
