My AVG virus scanner has been popping up today with an msg from the email scanner that "Auto POP3: Connecting to 194.149.96.101.adsl.nextra.cz"
Is this person attempting to connect to my computer? Never gotten that msg before from AVG till today not sure what it exactly means.

AVG is a Czech Company. but still seems fishy..no reason for your POP to have such a scan. I never seen AVG run a POP scan with a ip.

Hmm thanks for running the check. It did stop finally after about 40min of it coming up every few minutes. I ran checks for spy ware and antivirus and didn’t find anything wrong hopefully it was just avg being screwy.
