    I have been using SpyBot Search and Destroy for several years and never received any type of warnings and now I receive the following continually from SpyBot:

    "Your computer is trying to download Avenue "A" Inc. This is a known threat. Do you want to block this download?"

    This same message will appear several times within a matter of minutes even though I check that I want to block the download. Then a couple of others will appear with the name of "Double Click" and "Mediaplex".

    Anyone have an idea of what is triggering these messages. Seems like I have seen those names in cookies I have deleted.

    Did you change any Spybot settings recently?
