On Startup and going on line Zone Alarm kicked i with its flurry of Outlook Express wnat to access
etc.,
Then it said " XAU Update from 212 135 1,36,DNS"

Wants to come in.
So far I have denied itb accerss
But do I need it is it a real thing or a dodgy one.
How can I find out?

The only reference I can find for XAU relates to the precious metals market index. Have you been dealing in gold lately?:-))
