So everytime I try to log in through internet explorer I recieve a buffer overflow error from my macafee antivirus software. To gain internet access I had to disable my antivirus software :whistling: . I did some searches online about buffer overflow and wikipedia had a nice little description. However I could not locate any sites with a description of how to fix the problems created by buffer overflow. Also note, this error affects any type of internet log in. Another example would be trying to log into worldofwarcraft. Any ideas? :blink:

My computer stats are as follows:
1 GB of RAM
384 mb Virtual memory
144 GB Capacity

So I ended up reformating and that seems to have fixed the problem :blink: . How can I avoid future issues with Buffer overflow? :whistling:
