Every time I go to a website I get a survey to fill out and am promised some sort of prize like makeup or a ipod. This started last week.It does it for every site. How can I get this to stop ?
Windows XP, Panda Antivirus.

1. It's not a virus, it's a pop-up. Antivirus programs usually don't filter for pop-ups unless the specific pop-up has a virus (not the site you're on) so they can easily be installed "secretly". Most sites have pop-ups now, so you'll either have to deal with it or quit using those sites.

2. Get an ad blocker. There are many free ones out there. I love Ad Blocker Plus.

Grab a free copy of malwarebytes at http://www.malwarebytes.org. Install and run the scan. Clean off anything it finds.

If you still can't get it, I recommend using a service to clean your PC, like http://www.cleanourcomputer.com they will clean up anything they find and they guarantee their work!

FYI, XP is no longer supported by almost everyone. You might want to consider saving up for a new device.

Win XP is no longer supported. It is old and insecure and unsafe to use, as you gave found out. Upgrade to a modern OS / computer.
