    This box keeps popping up every few minutes asking for me to give permission for my PC to contact it. It also rates it as a HIGH RISK contact.

    1) Should I give my permission?

    2) I am told this is a Microsoft contact. What info is it sharing to be rated HIGH RISK?

    3) Is there a way to block this for good without keep getting the pop-ups? If so, would it affect the performance of my PC in any way.

    I have Windows updates set to manual and this problem only appeared yesterday morning and I dont recall downloading anything.

    However, I did upgrade Norton to the 2005 version about a week ago if this my have anything to do with it.

    I cannot find any answers on Google and would be grateful for any assistance with this.

    Many thanks

    Hi kiasu

    Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

    I did a ping for and the request timed out.

    I don't use Norton, does it show anything in Norton's Help file about permanently blocking a site?
    See if this link helps in configuring that site to be permanetly blocked:

    When was the last time you ran a virus scan?

    You might consider running an online virus scan at the following:

    Download, Install and check each of the following Spyware tools for updates:
    (If you already have the following, please make sure it is the latest version and has been updated)

    • Ad-Aware SE 1.05:
      Click on Full System Scan and deselect Search for negligible risk entries. Have Ad-Aware SE remove what it finds.
    • Spybot-S&D 1.3:
      Have it fix what it finds marked in Red.
    • Spyware Blaster 3.4:
      Click on Updates > Check for Updates Switch to Protection
      Under Quick Tasks click Enable All Protection. Close Spyware Blaster.

    Let us know if that helps or not.
