AOL security center and unless you deny the service it will load and give you that protection. If you do not need it, sign onto AOL and use the keyword AOL safety and security center and see if you can find some way to disable it.
My home computer has been acting strange since the beginning of December. I have done all the usual clean ups of my system, short of totally resotring everything. Here's what the problem is, when I sign in to Windows XP, I get a box that pops up that says McAfee has detected a suspicious file. It then says to run a full scan. My ISP is through Timer Warner Cable, I use AOL and AOL's Safety and Security Center for all my security. I do not have McAfee since I have the AOL. I believe when I originally purchased this computer (which is a Compaq Presario it did come with McAfee. But I had to uninstall it when I got the AOL Security Center. I have run full scans using the AOL, also I ran the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool, ran my computer checkup etc and nothing is being found to indicate that I have any virus's, trojans or worms on my computer. I also found out, that since I know have free AOL through time warner, AOL will no longer provide technical assistance to me. Can anyone tell me what else I can do?
