hi,

i've been using the internet for about 10 mins, i was on some wallpaper
sites. and now i have an icon in my hard drive, that says 'command'. and now
everytime i go to a web site, i get a pop-up saying 'the file or folder you
are opening contains web content that may be unsafe. the web content has
either been modified or is from an unknown sourse. do u you want to aloow it
to be initialized and be accssed by scripts?'

i've said no, but i want to get rid of the pop-up. shall i delete this
command icon? i've tried doing a restore and it wont do away.

any ideas wat i can do?

thanx

devin

Hi,

The command icon is not related to the popups, though it does seem oddly
coincidental. You can delete the command icon. The popups are a security
precaution, you can disable the behavior under tools/internet options, look
on the privacy tab.
