Its making these icons appear that are either porn or these downloads to those trojan spyware things. There are two icons where the time is, a yellow yield sign and the red x and they just lead me to more of those sites, can someone help me get rid of them?
I recently wiped my computer and installed a new Windows XP SP3. Now I keep getting an alert that Windows Security is blocking Windows Explorer. How do I settle this problem so I don't keep getting the alert?
Often, when attempting to download a particular file, I will get the Security Alert message: "Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded." For example, this message appears when attempting to download IE 8 and regardless of the security settings, firewall on or off, etc.
I definitley have some sort of virus on my computer and all sorts of pop ups keep coming up on my computer encouraging me to buy a program. I can't get to any other websites besides the one for this program as an alert pops up on the browser sayng my computer is infected. Also everytime I try to open a file a "Windows Security Alert" pops up and says that whatever file I sm trying to open is infected. This is a probloem because I have tried opening task manager, system configuration, and even using the run function wiuth different commands and nothing will open! I also tried downloaging Ad-aware on my external harddrive and then running it from there but it won't open either!
For some reason zonealarm gives me the following pop-up every time I boot up my computer : ZoneAlarm Security Alert/Server Program/ Generic Host Process for Win 32 Services is trying to act as a server. Identification: None Application: svchost.exe Source IP: 0.0.0.0:Port 135 I click : "remember this setting" [or I used to] and it does NOT remember - it comes up every time.I've tried rooting around in Zonealarm to figure out how to turn this off - no luck. Any ideas folks????
I was checking out a website online when a window with the Microsoft Windows Security logo popped up indicating infection with several types of Trojans/viruses. I did not make a note of them but the boxes all had green check marks against the purported trojans/viruses. I believe it instructed me to download something Instead, I immediately shut down my pc, and ran Scans in Safe Mode and also did an online scan with Trendmicro housecall. All the scans showed 0 infections. I am therefore wondering what this was all about as the Security alert had the exact logo as the Microsoft Windows Security.
The computer would load with large icons and large screen. after that the windows security alert comes up. RIght now its doing a total system scan. It says 156 total objects infected. If i purchase the malwarebytes anti malware will that fix the security alert along with the blue screen error? Thank you guys in advance... o .. and i have read the other posts that is why im running the malware.. but if i need to know anything else
I was browsing the internet and suddenly my internet stopped receiving packets and wouldn't work at all. So I restarted my computer and then as soon as I connected, ZoneAlarm appeared with a message saying:

This message keeps popping up every so often.. is it legitimate? or is it just a part of a pop-up ad/adware/etc.? "Windows Security Center WARNING: Windows Firewall detected suspicious network activity on your computer. Malicious software codes try to steal your privacy information, such as credit card numbers, electronic mail accounts, financial data or passwords.
There are suddenly no options listed under the "Manage security settings for:" heading, just blank space, so I have no way to edit my Firewall, Antivirus or Windows Update settings from the Center. I opened services.msc and it shows the service started automatically.
i have this problem at my school, some very annoying people found out how to use the remote shutdown command in my engineering class. hence they can shutdown my computer, and my friends, whenever they feel like it. i dont think they should have access to this but whatever they are doing it is really annoying and i need help. i tried making this program to abort the shutdown, but it only works if the shutdown time is greater than 0
I'd like to find a way to block Silverlight completely at the source- sort of like using the hosts file to block web pages. Not OS specific, just some completely viscious way so I never-ever see that pop-up, pop-over, pop-under again. I can go to Firefox or Chrome, but still, sometimes I've got to use IE8 and I dislike Silverlight in the strongest terms. TIA
A folder called upload keeps appearing in my hard drive with 1000s of zip folders and files, I deleted them yesterday, and they're all back again today. Does anybody know who I can block the uploading of these files, if they keep appearing?

Is there any way to turn off the help text that appears when you float the mouse pointer over the permanent icons you put either in the Systray or on the other end of the taskbar? To me, they're annoying/get in the way.
Is there a program that will allow me to block my kids from downloading programs and or music from the web. I don't want them to be able to download or install anything without some type of authorization process.
I was on MSN the other day and i got a random message from someone not on my list. They said 'Hi love' and sent me a camera invitation. I rejected because i didn't know this person. What i'm asking, is this a virus they tried to send to me?

I've forgotten but in a new install of XP-Pro,SP2 using NTFS on C: I don't have the Security Tab when I right click on a folder to setup sharing. I want this so I can set Permissions, etc. I have it on my other PC set up the same way but for some reason I don't on this new install.
What am I doing wrong? My username is a member of the Andministrators group.
I haven't been to this site for a while and I noticed I'm getting Security Warnings that my security settings has blocked of an ActiveX install. I know how to change those settings, but am reluctant to do so. Can anyone shed some light on this. I occasionally will get similar warnings on other sites, but it is consistant on this one. Once in a while IE6 will hang up on this and I'll have to got to Ctrl+Alt+Delete to get out of it.
I need a program to block certain actions on limited user accounts. I am the administrator on my computer, however my mom and sister use the computer as well. They have limited user accounts. My sister and my mom have accidentally screwed up some settings before, and deleted files and such, there better then they used to be, but i don't want to take any chances. I am looking for a program of some kind to block certain actions, such as right click properties on the start menu tool bar, etc. i have made there accounts have classic folders, i have hidden the my computer icon from the desktop and start menu so that they only see "my documents." however, because they have messed my system up before, i just want piece of mind and have a program block certain things that i select.
