    I have Windows Defender on my computer and lately it has been showing that an application on my computer is making changes.......it states the above mentioned title is located in
    C:\\Windows\System32\drivers. I have tried to research this and found that it belongs to AOL and could or could not be either malware or a virus.
    Can anyone help me as to how I might find out exactly what this is. It is only the past two weeks that I have been getting this alert. I have had AOL on my computer for years.
    Thank you and I appreciate any help you can give.
    :confused: :confused:
