Popups in various forms for XP Antispyware 2012 are tying up my computer. I have bitdefender 2010 and it is good until 2012 so I know these popups are fake. How can I make them stop? They are only tying up my login acct. - I am logged in as my husband now and it is working fine.

I'd suggest reading through this post WARNING: Fake Anti-Spyware, Pop-ups
edit: I'm not sure the details within that thread are up to date or not, they should be. However the steps are pretty much the same. Here is an in-depth guide from a trusted source on how to remove it Remove Win 7 Antispyware 2012 and Vista Antivirus 2012 name changing rogue (Uninstall Guide)
Download, install and update either Malwarebytes, SUPERAntiSpyware, or the ComboFix. Turn off system restore and boot to safe mode to run the scans. Test the system.
If those don't work try something like the Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10
