i just logged onto facebook, and was playing a game. I have mcafree anti virus plus on my laptop, which is saying my computer is secure, the internet was shut down and vista anti spyware 2011 ALERT has come up, saying critical systam alert attack from: 251.34.239.145 port: 20073 threat: IRC-Worm.DOS.Loa
i dont understand firewalls... but have heard rumours that these can be bogus messages and when you click to fix it/or block the attack that you actually let the trojan in, can anyone tell me if this is correct or what i should do please? thank you, Jo

Start Windows normally and it should be gone
Thanks for posting but as this thread is almost a year old I would imagine it has been dealt with. Locking thread.
