Have you downloaded Prevx ?

If so i believe norton is asking you to give permission for it to update to the latest definitions.

what is prevx i haven't knowingly downloaded this i cant see anything refering to this on my pc. I think you are right norton is asking permission to allow access

  thesut 22:26 02 Apr 2006

the first link you sent me is scanning at the moment i'll see how that goes

Sorry i cannot assure you how good this program is,as ive never heard of it before.
I would suggest typing Prevx in the PCA search box and see what else is said...if anything.

Hope this helps

ewido doesn't do anything all i can think of is block the connection and tick the always use this action box

What do you mean ewido dosnt do anything,do you mean found nothing ?

Have a look in add and remove programs for a program called PREVX

Alternatively,use Start> Search > All files and folders > type PREVX...this will tell you if it is installed on your system,maybe using the advanced search also.

I cannot find anything negative about this program anywhere.

Its looks like an antimalware/spyware program similar to Ewido,spybot,adaware,etc....the ones ive staed are very good...but again no idea about prevx if thats whats on your system.

You do not want this on your system! It is not prevx. Run HJT click here and post a log on the Malware Removal forum click here

Please let us know how you get on.

Vog...If not Prevx,can you explain what it is please.
