I received the message Windows has detected an IP address conflict, we have one computer, what should my next step be? Is this a security concern?

The MiniToolBox did not fix your problem.  This program only gathers information.  What ever happened was unrelated to this program.

 

Please post the results of this scan.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I would appreciate you posting the results of the MiniToolBox scan here for my perusal....as DC3 has stated this has not "fixed" your PC problem.

 

Your feeling that this may be a security concern could be well founded.

 

Do you, by any chance conduct banking transactions on this PC...?

 

 

Regards,
