still getting messages saying
"Windows has detected an internet hacking attempt...
Somebody's trying to infect your Pc ith spyware or harmful viruses" blah blah blah...
it basically wants to download some program wich offers total protection. i dont think i should trust it since before i started it was claiming that porn was in total controll? crazy yep. now its just these messages saying that rubbish and ie keeps popping up.
