I came back to my PC after leaving it for 30 mins, connected to BC.

There were 3 panels showing. 2 by SPY BOT S&S and 1 by Zone Alarm Pro.

Zone Alarm just said Windows Media trying to Access Net, BUT SpyBot said TWO attemped Registry Changes noticed but gave little information, only the following
WMC_Rebootcheck.
C:\Windows\inf\Uregmp2.exe/fixups

Webtract_cleanup0
Rundll32.exe C:\Windows\system32\adrp (rest of file name is hidden, but think it is more than adrp)

I dissalowed these changes but have NO IDEA WHAT they are.

Anyone got any ideas........

Hasn't made the slightest difference, as far as I can see to the PC. I cannot find any info on Rebootcheck or Webtract.

Many Thanks

:thumbsup:

That is Windows Media Player checking for updates and reporting your usage and is normal. If you open WMP and go to Tools>Options you will see that there are six or seven areas under the various tabs that cause it to "phone home" including one that looks for updates daily. That is really a joke because it just doesn't happen, except for updates in the content MS wants to sell you. I have disabled all those features.

:flowers: Brilliant. Thanks a LOT. This PC is mainly in Finnish so even simple messages in English take a long time to work out, because the operating system and help etc ALL COMES OUT IN FINNISH :trumpet:

Once again, thank you.

:thumbsup:
