BO:Writable BO:Heap IEXPLORE.EXE:WS2_32.socket


I am getting a BO:Writable BO:Heap, error repeatedly.  I am running windows XP service pack 3, updated with all critical security updates, and VirusScan 8.5.0i (patch level 8).

Can you please tell me what needs to be done, as this error comes up every 1 minute / 30 secs.

Best Regards

Now VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i Patch 3, try to upgrade that and see if issues disappear.
