sometimes when im online, my firewall program tells me that a "cydoor ad technologies" wants to access the internet. i'm not sure what it does, so i just keep blocking it, but then the message returns a few seconds later. my question is, what is this program and what is it doing??

It's spyware you got for free while downloading some other program: http://cexx.org/cydoor.htm
Go to Start/run, type msconfig, and go to the startup tab.
If you see anything pertaining to Cydoor there, CD_Load.exe or something else, uncheck it, click OK, and reboot.

Now download <A HREF="http://www.lavasoftusa.com/index.html">Ad-Aware</A>, and have it scan your registry and your drives.

Check all found spyware references, click 'continue', and have them removed,

Good luck,
