I run xp with all the Norton Antivirus and just today downloaded spy ware blaster. Within the past few days, somehow a little flashing shield icon with a red X in the center ended up on my tool bar. Since then I am getting lots of spam and porn e mails wanting me to open. (I'm smarter then that) I have tried everything I know to eliminate it. If I click on it, it opens a web page that has no exit and I have to go back to "home" just to cover the blasted thing up. But the icon keeps flashing and about every three to five minutes it pops a small yellow warning on the lower left side of my screen. I have to X it out or wait about thirty seconds before it disappears off my screen. When it pops up, sometimes it will freeze up the work I am doing. I am not a computer whiz so find it difficult to know what to do. In fact I pride myself in the fact that I can even send an e mail. Any takers? ,,,,,pleaseeeeeese.
