    Hello:

    My question is regarding Macromedia Flash Player 6 or 7. I have made several screensavers from swf (flash) files. Whenever I start them they or the flash player tries to access the internet and connect to IP 127.0.0.1. I have The Cleaner, Norton Anti-Virus, and Spybot Search and Destroy installed. I think my system is clean. I can't figure out why the screensaver or flash player tries to make a outbound connection. I recently reformatted my hard drive and reloaded everything back in. I never had this problem before. Could anyone give me any advice about this beside removing the flash player?

    Thank you!

    Hi Petlydecker,
    You don't have to worry about that connection attempt.
    127.0.0.1 is your own computer ;)
