    Hey guys;

    Am new here. Been trying to help a friend of mine who is having issues w/ Macafee & XP. Whenever he tries to access the web, he gets the following error (not sure if in the right area/section for this, so bare w/ me);

    McAfee has detected a potentially unauthorized change to your computer.


    SystemGuard Name: Internet Explorer Security Zones

    Change: Registry Created

    More Info

    SystemGuard Description: Internet Explorer has four predefined security zones: Internet, Local intranet, Trusted sites, and Restricted sites. Each security zone has its own security setting, which is predefined or customized. Security Zones are a target of some spyware or other potentially unwanted programs because lowering the security level allows these programs to bypass security alerts and act undetected.

    Process: C:program FilesMSNMSNCoreFilesmsn.exe

    Process Name: msn

    Process Publisher: Microsoft Corporation

    Affected Items: HKEY_USERSS-1-5-21-329068152-1897051121-839522115-1004SoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionInternet SettingsZoneMapDomains//@[email protected]/

    If you did not expect this change, McAfee recommends that you block it. If you expected this change, allow it.

    Any suggestions or ideas? He has already set it back to the defaults, etc, w/ no luck. Thanx so much in advnace
