I have a pop-up that says its from windows firewall saying it is blocking a "trojan-keylogger.Win32.Fung. It does not give a choice to block it. i dont trust this so i just close the box, but it reappears every 5 minutes or so. any help would be appreciated. i have a sony vaio running windows xp.
You dont have a keylogger. What you have is a trojan trying to scare you into buying a rogue program with a fake alert.

Rootkit: "A Rootkit is software that cloaks the presence of files and data to evade detection, while allowing an attacker to take control of the machine without the user's knowledge. Rootkits are typically used by malware including viruses, spyware, trojans, and backdoors, to conceal themselves from the user as well as from malware detection software such as anti-virus and anti-spyware applications. Rootkits are also used by some adware applications and DRM (Digital Rights Management) programs to thwart the removal of that unwanted software by users."
