Every time I go on-line from home, my Norton firewall pops up sayng SEAR1 application is attempting to access the the web using a program Windows/system/winserve.exe I always block it, but does any one know what it is?

It's Spyware, good thing you blocked it or it would keep giving you pop-ups all the time.

Get yourself a copy of Spybot from click here and Ad-Aware from click here scan for spyware with these
