    Some1 just posted this on a Fourm i go on just now

    Though i'd ask for him :)

    He said this:

    what is this, it just popped up when i was on the net, is it a real warning or summit else???

    then

    yeah i knew about the virus, but what im asking is what is that pop-up warning me about it. ive never had something like that pop-up on my comp before.

    ive done a norton anti-virus scan and its showed nothing

    Any help would be great thx in advance

    Looks bogus to me, Internet Explorer wouldn't pop up to warn you about a virus.

    Its a spyware message, probably just a popup or Windows Messenger service.

    Heh by the time RPC exploit is detected you'd already be counting down to reboot.

    I even got it from Mozilla haha

    You can also disable Messenger an easier way then going through services, stop by www.grc.com and download the Shoot the Messenger prog. It disables it with a click of a button.
