I keep getting the followimg message now and then and gives me two options 'Trust this activity in the future' or 'Close this alert' :

McAfee has automatically blocked a buffer overflow.

About this Buffer Overflow
File: C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe

Buffer overflows can cause legitimate programs to fail. Other programs that experience buffer overflows, however, can be used to harm your computer, compromise its security, and damage valuable files.

What does thic mean ?
