    Hi My pc has suddenly started popping up security alerts, especially when I go onto ebay. This warning pops up

    The current web page is trying to open a site on the internet
    Do you want to allow this


    Current site ebay.doubleclick.net
    Internet site C\WINDOWS\system32\shdoclc.dll

    then options YES NO

    There is a yellow shield with an exclaimation mark
    and a further warning

    Warning allowing this can expose your computer to security risks. If you dont trust the current Web page choose NO

    When I go to choose no and close it down it pops back about ten times before the page finishes loading. It's driving me crazy. Can anyone here help me find a solution?

    ebay.doubleclick.net seems like an advertising site. Which browser are you using? IE, opera, or firefox?
    If you have spybot S&D or ad-aware SE try scanning your computer for spyware first.
    Oh yeah, which security program on your computer is popping up those security alerts?
    Can you post a screenshot of the security alert that popup?

    Also...If you use Spybot-SD and use the IE- Resident, it automatically blocks
    the annoying "doubleclick" Advertisment site.

    Use teatimer with it too!
