Thread: Security issue

  1. #1

    Question Security issue

    As of today, I have started to get a pop-up Windows box saying "Supervisor Password required. It appears to relate in some way to Internet Otions, but I neither want it nor need it!

    For the record, along with Windows98SE and IE6, I am currently running AVG, Zone Alarm, AdSubtract, AdAWare and Tracks Eraser. I mention these because all or any of them might have caused the sudden appearance of my mystery window. I'm as tight as Fort Nox out there and I certainly don't need any more help from IE6.

    Any ideas on how to get rid of this unwelcoe visitor?

    Hi Mitch,

    Seems like an IE6 thing. Check HERE to see if this is what happened. You should be able to get out of it.

    "...tight as Fort Knox." Around here they call it "...tight as a bulls butt in high fly season." And it's high fly season up here now...
