This is starting to get annoying can anyone explain what is going in or how
to cure it? I am running Windows XP SP2 Home, on an internal network (with 2
other machines) through a Dell router to a cable modem. I have ZoneAlarm
(the freebie version as the Pro licence has expired) and Norton Antivirus.
Symptoms are:

1. Every so often zonealarm tells me
"Firewall has blocked access to c97.e2bn.net [] [TCP Port 445]"
(Which seems to correspond to a plausible local site here in Cambridge UK
which I may well have visited once)

2. The same address appears on "My Network places" and generates the
zonealarm message if I click on it. If I try and delete the entry explorer just hangs.

3. If I try and do a full system scan with Norton Antivirus the scan also hangs at
D:\Documents and Settings\Chris\NetHood\...\target.lnk e2bn on c97.e2bn.net

FWIW it feels more like a cock up than a security issue..its as if somehow an inaccessible external shared disk has got added to my system...but maybe not? Any ideas?

I suggest you go to the HighJackThis forum and follow the instruction there. POST you log in that forum, not here. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MODIFY THE COMPUTER YOURSELF. You could damage your operating system beyond repair. Please be patient and a HJT Team member will review your post and reply to you as soon as possible.
