You made no mention if you have a firewall
RE: your P.S.,to the left,click on forum FAQ,scroll down to the emoticon box
Every day I receive 2 Avast Anti-Vitus warnings. The second warning immediately follows the first.
File Name: C:Docum~1\HP-ADM~\LOCALS~1\Temp\CDASilentInstall05.exe
Malware name: Win32Adware-gen.[Adw]
Almost the same, but with a different ending: Temp\00000001.tmp
I always choose the 'delete' option.
I don't understand how these gain access to my system (Win XP and use Internet Explorer - Outlook Express for e-mail) as they appear at times when I am not using the internet.
Is there any way I can block or stop this from happening?
P.S. When I preview this post I see a happy face icon where I've typed C:Documen~ ???
