Does anyone recognise notepad.com

Last night my firewall announced that notepad.com was attempting to access the interent and blocked it. Does anyone know what this could be (probably something nasty). It was quite late and I didn't have time to run the usual zappers. A google search has come up blank.

Grateful for any help.

There is this one click here. However in your computer the nearest you have is notepad.exe, which is Microsoft's simple text editor "Notepad".

Thanks. I had in fact already found that site. The confusing thing is that it was something trying to get out from, not into my machine. This would suggest something within the pc itself.

Hi ventanas. .COM is the extension for a command file. A search of my C drive (Windows 98se) reveals several files of this type, but no Notepad.com.

Good thinking, that hadn't occured to me. I now have an idea of what to look for. Could be a busy evening. Thanks.
