Following a recently virus attack i am slowly returning my computer to its pre attack state. I have been using spybot search/destroy for some while before the attack and everything worked fine. Since the attack i have stepped up my secruity and put spybot onto its highest secruity settings possible. However whenever i connect to the internet via internet explorer i get the following message in Spybot S&D resident box 'Spybot S&D reports that you want to download double click'. his is a known threat. Do you want to block this download' This message seems to mostly appear when using ebay andcan flash up every time there is a screen change. This message also appears when visting other sites but double click is replace by 'Avenue A, Inc" These messages only appear when using internet explorer. If i access via msn then these messages do not appear so i assume it is something to do with IE. Have i set some setting too high - don't even know what these 2 programms are Any help greatly appreciated.
Open SpyBot S&D and click on the Immunize button....At the bottom of the page in the Browser helper section make sure you have it set to "Block all bad pages silently" and not "Ask for confirmation" or " Display dialogue".
That should get rid of the popup boxes.
As for Avenue-A and Double click....these are merely tracking cookies and not a real threat.
