Can any one tell me what this message means?

is it spyware or hacker based?
Any help welcome

Type "401 mpv warning" into Google. Almost 140 returns. You should see what you want somewhere amongst that lot!

Thanks
I tried that and got 3780 returns, most of the 1st two pages were techy, asking for logs etc.
i just need an idiots guide to start with, then maybe the techy stuff if needed

I've searched for the MPV warning and I can't find anything that's a 100% guaranteed fix.

Have a look here though, click here

SearchAssistant is in the log, but the poster has fixed the problem- presumably.

I'd suggest you download HijackThis from click here.

Install it in its own folder and post the log here.

You might have to post the log in sections- there's an 800 word limit on this forum.

On reading the info on these links, I think as Eastender said, a busy time ahead.
I think i will try a system restore first before I head down the tech avenue. I would have thought Adaware & Spybot would have picked this up.
Used both of these and Ccleaner already.
Any tips to indicate if the problem still exists or is it a case of scanning the log as Number 7 mentions.
