I can't seem to download and execute the setup


pls check the security settings of the browser - lower it, check the pop-up blocker (turn it off), if you are you using a firewall or anti-virus disable it first, just make sure to enable it back once done with the download...(you may also clear the cookies and temp file on the internet options under tools of your browser, and restore defualts and on the advanced tab). Thanks.

pls check if there any virus becoz this could happen due to some heavy virus downloads or distruption. Update your anti virus software properly. There are so many viruses and Worms which can distrupt your wireless internet.

Possible Virus


Spyware cause the same effect as general browser pop-ups but they are usually powered by Browser Helper Objects, ActiveX controls which attaches to Internet Explorer and contacts their servers without your knowledge. This not only means waste of internet bandwidth, but your private information may also be sent to someone. You need to treat any outgoing connection without your permission, as a security threat.
Along with your anti-virus software, you need to anti-spyware tools such as Ad-AwareSpybot Search & DestroySpyware Blaster at a bare minimum. You must update the pattern files before scanning just like what you do for your anti-virus software.

  • Use HOSTS file to block unwanted ad servers and sites that are known to spread malware
  • Increase your browser security settings. Visit the following link to learn how to protect the system from parasites.
Dealing with Unwanted Spyware, Parasites, Toolbars and Search Engines
(Site packed with full of security tips, advice to prevent parasites being installed)
  • Use an application-based firewall, such as Zone Alarm, Sygate etc. They alert you whenever an outgoing traffic by a new application is detected. By doing this, you are preventing dialers, Trojans accessing the internet. Give equal importance to the configuration of the firewall. Assume your firewall as the gatekeeper, and only allow programs that you want, to access the internet. You may then test the effectiveness of the Firewall (for inbound protection) using any of these websites. They scan your system for open ports and vulnerabilities and advice you what action to take.

Everytime I turn on my computer whether I'm online or not the application svchost asks for several approvals from my firewall to connect to the internet.Any suggestions?Thanks,,,rickconstantin@hotmail.com


don't let it access the internet. svchost is a trojan, so do a full system scan with your anti-virus and get rid of it. if you dont have a anti-virus, go to the avg website and download it.
