    hi,

    sorry didn't know where to post this...but i have been getting a message box popping up when starting my computer and other random times...
    it says that "You(or a program) requests information from ar.atwola.com.."
    then, below the message it asks me which connection to use to connect to the internet...anyway, i've always clicked cancel..can't seem to get rid of it...

    does any1 know anything about this...thanks :)

    go to http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/hijackthis.zip , and download 'Hijack This!'.
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

    It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.
