Hi Phil,
Thank you for replying. Actually, I had done a search in google before even posting and since I couldn't find it, I came here. Have you ever seen this type of message or heard of anyone having it before?
Again, thanks for replying.
Peace.

That gets you the world & their are trillions of error messages out there, if it is not there, you have something unique.

You now start cleaning your comp, start with these & then check your MSN settings.

Hi John,
Thank you for the help and info. I am going to follow the steps you advised and just wondered if you can tell me what causes that type of message and if it a bad thing or a danger to the pc?
Also, since I am not a very tech type, (dinosaur here), can you tell me how to check my MSN settings?
I appreciate all your help.
Peace

Not a clue JavaMoon, until you run the programs & give us the info / logs.
Bit like telling a mechanic, my car stopped, or the doctor, I have a pain in my leg, they have to diagnose.

I don't use MSN & it depends how you have yours setup.

Wow! Thanks so much. Right now it seems to be fine. I even downloaded the hitman pro and did a scan and there was no threats detected at all. I really have to thank you so much John.
I always take notes when someone helps me so I can refer back to them if or when needed.
Thank you again.
Peace

Good news, keep these basics in mind for the future. Your skills were better than I expected, after your intro.
