Hi there, I just copy and pasted the thread title from another thread in which there appeared to be identicle circumstances to mine, so i'm hoping this forum can help. Norton is registering and blocking attacks every couple of minutes coming from various places, though thynksn0taeg.com crops up a bit. This seemed to start when I started using the PHProxy addon for Firefox. Last night it was throwing up SVCHOST.EXE instead of the Firefox.exe in the message about blocked attacks. Spybot S&D and Norton 360 have removed various things but the attacks are still coming, what can I do to stop this? What details do I need to provide for help with this?
Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
