If you have Norton toolbar installed, uninstalled the toolbar and then check. However, if it is coming when you are browsing using Internet Explorer or Firefox, then you need to turn on the Phising Filter.

Thanks

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, it would seem that your concern is caused by three programs running in the background. The first is the actual phishing program that is being detected and therefore could be deleted/fixed. However, there is another program running whose function is to re-install a copy of the phishing program from a third program that is dormant and is just the "nursery".

Solutions could be tedious and challenging since it calls for identifying all three. Normal course of action may include (but not be limited to):

  • run a deep/full virus scan both in Normal and in Safe Mode (if your antivirus will allow);
  • download, install and run Ad-Aware or similar malicious file(s) scanner. Again run on both Normal and Safe Mode;
  • delete/clean all your temporary files. better still run Disk Cleanup (Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools);
  • un-check unnecessary files from your "msconfig" (Start, Run, type "msconfig" less the quotes);
  • do this a couple of times both in Normal and Safe Mode if allowable.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

The phishing filter is a nuisance you may just want to disable.
if you are really getting phished, you have different problems altogether. always check the web address and change passwords often. to disable:

in internet explorer click the tools tab and go down to phishing filter
select phishing filter settings
be careful in here, don't change anything but what you need
the filter settings are at the bottom, select disable or turn off automatic website checking.

I do not have account with Wells Fargo.. some one is using my e-mail address....


Margaret, it could be a spam/phishing email, meaning they are chancers. Check the email(don't click on any links within the email though) and check the sender. If it came from Wells Fargo, it should have the domain, "wellsfargo.com" in the senders address, if it doesn't, then it's more than likely a phishing email.

This link will give a bit more info on phishing. There's a lot of chancers out there.

Phishing Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

QUOTE: Phishing is the attempt to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details (and sometimes, indirectly, money), often for malicious reasons, by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication.

If you think that you're email account has been compromised, change your password for the account.

Hope this helps, Nik.

McAfee bundles a lot of features into its antivirus. Besides the classical protection features found in most antivirus products, McAfee also integrates a Silent Full Screen feature, which stops all antivirus notifications from being displayed while full screen applications are running, so it won't interfere with your work. The Secure File Shredder feature is another useful feature, which will allow you to permanently and totally delete confidential files, without leaving any traces of them and eliminating all recovery possibilities. It is also optimized for laptops, by integrating a battery-saving mode that will leave intensive scans that require more power and resources for later, when your laptop is plugged into an electricity source.<br /> <p> <br> <p>Some other features are "on access file scanner" - you can access the files while scanning them, "inbound and outbound firewall protection" - to monitor your incoming and outgoing traffic over the network, it can block any suspicious connection that can harm your computer, " spyware protection" - to detect and remove spywares in order to protect your pc and your personal data from hackers, " daily definition update "- this will help your protection software to have the most recent updated virus database, so that it can prevent newly added malicious codes spreading in your pc.

How to take off card protect problem, I can't take pictures with a memory card on because the "card protect" notification displays on the screen of the camera. how to fix?


Take the memory card out of the camera and look at it. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Dell blank page keeps appearing how can I correct


Sounds like your screen saver is set to a very short period, like 1 minute or less.

Try this, Right-Click on the Desktop Wallpaper (behind the icon on the desktop, NOT on an icon), then select Properties.

When that dialog window opens, Left Click on the Screen Saver tab at the top of the window.
This will select that page of options.

On the Screen Saver page, about in the middle of the page you should see

Wait: (and a box with a number in it) minutes (check box) On resume, password protect.

I suspect that the number in the box is small, like 1 or 2, try changing this to something like 15 minutes.

Now this solution assumes your on Windows XP, this is done slightly different on Vista, please inform me if this doesnt help you!

Hope this helps you, Good Luck :)

Internet Explorer 8 vs. Norton Protection Center


Symantec/Norton has actually done a very good thing. You can update to Norton NIS2008 for FREE.
It solves the phishing problem and is a greatly improved product. CCSVCHOST.EXE does not run continuously and there is a resource meter to show what CPU usage Norton is taking. Scans are faster and web page loading is instantaneous.
