Keep getting a message saying -

'skinkers receiver' 'outgoing' 'blocked' from zone alarm.

What is this? spyware on my computer?

I have run spybot and adaware and got rid of everything it found.

Don't think so.

It keeps trying to connect to the web. Could it be something to do with Sky news alerts?
