When does this window show, and what program is displaying it?

Does this error prevent you from doing anything, if so what?

What do you use to prevent hackers, and guard against viruses and spyware?

The message is come after say 4-5 minutes and not related to any software application program. If i am not using any application on my Computer, it also come. Also, i use Mcafee, Ad-ware Personal Spyware for securing my computer. While surfing or working on any application, the window does frequently come and irritate me. I hope its help

More scans may be an idea.

Thanks for that faisal.

This message isn't bringing up any useful hits on Google, so it's a bit of a mystery. But it looks like "something" is trying to connect to the internet.

Does your McAfee include the Firewall? If so, McAfee may keep logs of attempts by unknown applications to connect to the internet in its logs. You could open up McAfee's main program and search for the logs and inspect those.

In addition, I would goto two online scanners, one at Housecall, to scan for viruses as a backup check, and let it remove everything it finds, and the other an anti-spyware online scanner at
You will need to use Internet Explorer for the Ewido scanner to work.

Your Ad-ware Personal Spyware is not one I have heard of. Is it Lavasoft's Ad-Aware? If so, it doesn't really cover all types of spyware and so you should consider improving your spyware detection.

Do you keep your McAfee anti-virus definitions up to date?
