I recently went to check my Yahoomail on internet explorer and a warning sign went up saying that someone was potentially trying to take over my computer. It was only when I clicked on a new e-mail that was in my inbox.

I primarily use Mozilla/Firefox for all of my surfing, but I use my internet explorer when I have to check my e-mail because I do not allow cookies on my Mozilla account.

Anything I should be concerned about?

I wouldn't be surprised if they did...

You don't seem to have an antivirus program installed. Download a free one at Grisoft http://free.grisoft.com/freeweb.php. Install it and make sure to check for updates.

You don't seem to have a firewall program installed. Using a firewall will allow you to give/deny access for applications that want to go online. Download a free one at ZoneAlarm http://www.zonelabs.com.

Get those two now.

For the warning message, what was it? A popup or in the email? Does it still happen? Every time or only in that email?

It was only when I had opened the e-mail did the popup show.

It seems as though this was a one time thing, as the problem did not happen again.

I will get the software that you recommeded. Thx a bunch.

Sinceramente,
Sprinkles

I actually got a new hard drive recently and reinstalled windows, so whatever was in this thread shouldn't be a problem anymore. However, I will read your spyware tutorial advice.
