My brother gets a pop up shown as medium risk - msx.midi.exe. I have searched Microsoft for him but nothing returned. Likewise on PC Advisor. Can anyone enlighten me please.

Regards

Omit the msx and type midi.exe into google that gives a multitude of answers, I hope this helps.

Sounds like a virus of some sort. They often come as a recognisable file, say a midi, with the exe hidden.

Where does it appear? Was it via an email? Try a virus scan with the latest definitions. Or online: click here

Hi Diodorus Siculus

This was his exact message to me:

keep getting a dial up request from a programme called msx.midi.exe Norton says it is a medium risk and should be blocked clicked that but it still comes up.

Elsewhere on PC Advisor someone suggested running 'STINGER' so I've passed that on to him as well
