I was alerted by my Norton internet security earlier in the day of two things that were blocked. It said that wraxcnsemo.tmp contained threat Trojan.Adclicker and mowrnsxaec.tmp contained threat Trojan.Gen. A minute after this I was alerted to two items that were quarantined by Norton. Suspicious behaviour detected in oarxnswcme.tmp and suspicious behaviour detected in wosmcarnex.tmp. Both detected by Sonar. Right after this is when I received the first intrusion attempt alerts from Norton. These intrusion attempts have been happening every 10 minutes or so ever since. They say that the risk name of them is either HTTPS TidServ or HTTPS Tidserv Request 2. I did a Norton Full System scan and nothing came back negative. I am not a tech savvy person and donít know anything about computers. I would like to know how to stop these attempts from happening, whatís wrong with my computer and how can I fix it? I have tried to look up some information on the risk names and found out that TidServ is a rootkit. I donít really know what that is but I donít think itís good. It said on one site that if youíre dealing with a rootkit you should go to Bleeping Computer for assistance, so here I am. I use Internet Explorer and have Windows XP. I haven't noticed anything different with my computer other than the intrusion attempt alerts.
