and several causes. I think I could provide you with a fix, but it would involve editing one or more system files - how do you feel about doing that?

just post back when you're ready.

We'll need to know:-

1. Operating system

2. When do you get the error message - what's happening at the time?

"will this prevent hackers etc from gettin in me pc?"

What makes you think hackers are even remotely interested in your PC?

Do you use it to control the UK national defence system or something similar?

If you don't, I think that you are rather overestimating the importance of your PC.

In fairness, whether the chance of a home computer hack is slim or not, there is still a possibility it could happen and the desire to defend against that possibility should be encouraged. Although rare it can and does happen - I've seen the evidence myself and had to repair the damage done for one unhappy friend.

To answer one of the questions asked, no, NOD32 will no directly defend against hackers. It is an antivirus program (the single best antivirus software avialble in my opinion) and scans all files as they are accessed and monitors internet traffic and emails.

Any of the free firewall programs are OK for general protection - ZoneAlarm is as good as anything at keeping the nasties at bay and it works well with all mainstream antivirus products.

The trouble with firewalls is in knowing how to use them. Without prior experience it is easy to become overwhelmed.

I suggest you stick with just one antivirus product and one firewall product. Downloading and installing one trial after another will eventually bog your PC down and start causing problems. better to pick one of each now and learn how to use them.
