I am new to this forum & wanted to see if I could get some help with my laptop so that I could attend to the problem myself. Thank you for the opportunity to post!
I have a Dell Latitude D630. It was issued to me by my "company" (employer to remain anonymous) in 2009, I believe. It has Windows Vista on it & has really been a good machine. I have mainly used Internet Explorer as my web browser, but the company is switching over to Google Chrome in the near future. At any rate, TREND MICRO OfficeScan is the virus protection software on this machine, & for the last 3 weeks or so, it has been in overdrive. As soon as the computer has booted up, an OfficeScan Notification Message pops up saying "OfficeScan detected a Web security policy violation and blocked the URL(s) listed below." Sometimes, there might be 50 instances of weird websites that have been blocked in 5 minutes time. How in the world do I stop this?
A computer techie that I know suggested that I go to "Add/Remove Programs" to see if strange websites related to coupons, mysearch, etc. I did that & found some "xvid" website & deleted it. I deleted a couple of other things that I no longer use. This has not helped. Again, does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get rid of whatever is causing this problem?
