I am having pop up messages come up as follows: "Message from ALERT SERVICE to Windows User on 24/04/03 00.16 WARNING - YOUR COMPUTER IS AT RISK! You have just received this message through an open port on youir computer. This means that anyone can send a message like this, or even use the open port to theor advantage to invade your privac. Please visit www,BYEBYEADS.com to secure this port and never receive messages like this again. MAKE SURE YOU WRITE THIS ADDRESS DOWN BEFORE YOU PRESS OK. PRESSING OK WILL NOT AUTOMATICALLY TAKE YOU TO THE WEBSITE. Go to www.BYEBYEADS.com to stop pop-ups now!" (I never click on OK but just close them.) I have Norton Internet Security, have done online port scan checks with Symantec which said all were OK, have checked my Start up programs (only 4 legit ones + 4 desktop.ini ) At the moment I have a trial of TDS but not yet the full version. Should I have anything to worry about with these messages (a similar one came up in French today) or could it be I still have a buried program somewhere? They are a pain in the ass and have had at least 4 come up in 2 hrs. Iam on Win XP and Broadband. Thanks for any advice / help!
