I keep getting a message from my firewall (Zone Alarm) that fsg_4203.exe is trying to access. I am denying it, but wonder what it is and if there is something else I should be doing to eliminate it.

Thanks for any help on this.

From what I find doing a little Google research, it is most likely adware delivered by Grokster or Gator.
Have you run Ad-AwareSE or Spybot Seach and Destroy?

May I suggest that you post a HiJackThis! log so the BC team of volunteers can analyse it and help you get rid of this (and maybe other) instance of malware?

Thank you... I did post one on May 3, 2005 6:03 a.m. Topic "Hijack this Log Please help diagnose" when I realized this was an option. Waiting for help on it.
