Does anyone know what this is about: a popup appeared which
Adobe Flash Player stopped a potentially unsafe operation
The following local application on your computer or network:
is trying to communicate with the Internet-enabled location:
It then goes on to advise that if I want to allow the
communication I should click on Settings.
This sounds like a virus problem. Can anyone advise me on
Thanks in advance.

msn.server..... id'd as B-S trojan/malware (bad). Hacker
Be on the safe side.
Run MBAM and SAS (or your preferred malware and spyware
progs) throw it into quarrantine!
Let 'er rot!
btw- you're famous, now in google!
Thanks for responding Gary. Pretty funny about the Google
comment - never occurred to me. Anyway I have spent the last 2 days
running many of the online scanners - Kapersky, Symantec, Macafee,
(currently running Nod32) and some malware software: Adaware,
SuperAnitSpyware, and some rootkit detectors and those are the ones
I can remember! Issues were found (some known, some not) and 2
items pointed out were actually installed by me but did not do any
damage (I looked at the registry and other places for telltale
signs of virus deployment as per Symantec instructions for those
flagged virus's but I was ok) however not one of the flagged items
more than 24 hours and I have not seen any messages appear
restore points. It looks like my installed antivirus software
(TrendMicro) worked for the regular virus problems and somehow
there is nothing going on that is getting past them. This is what I
get for being a little risky lately. My antivirus and firewall
software are on high alert mode for the time being and we'll see
what happens from here. I take a look at the software you
let me know.
Sorry about all the acronyms.
