Hi,

Everytime I use my computer, after 5 minutes of use, a small black window would pop up which seems to be trying to access the net but fails to. Theres no way to close it and i dont know what it is. Would anyone recognise it? I have uploaded a screen Shot of my desktop.

Please help. Its very very annoying having this window a permanent fixture on my desktop.

you give no information about which computer windows system you are using,if you are on dial up or boadband, what antivirus protection you have on board and what other protection you have, when you last updated it all and when you last ran scans, and if system restore is enabled; if system restore IS enabled has IT been tried to roll back the computer to a date before this thing appeared?

that for a basic start will help others to know what you have hopefully already tried and where to go from here

It would help if you really did upload a screen shot. All i got was an advert when i clicked.

lol, ive now realised what ive done. I clicked the desktop(obviously its going to be an advert, doh) and ive just seen the click here at the bottom on the topic. It is late, thats my excuse.

I suggest you just scan your computer with a range of virus checkers.

Not an advert to me.It just says navigation to web site was canceled.

Hello,

Thankyou for the replies. Im sorry I havent replied sooner. (Had a lot of last minute christmas shopping to do!)

I'm sorry i didnt give much more information at the start!

buteman, that seems to be the solution, I cant apply it at the moment becuase it has not popped up yet, but it will do very soon Will try the solution then!

Thankyou very much for your kind help!
