I have Windows XP and today my kids told me we must have avirus. The ZoneLab keeps asking if the following exe programs can access the internet. We do not have a clue what they are of if they should be able to access the internet or not. When we try to get out of the MediaAcck.exe question... the window comes back up... we have to manually turn off the PC and restart to make it go away. Do you have any ideas?

Tks. :tazz:

definitely it's a malicious spyware program.. What can u do is that, go to Windows Task Manager (alt+cntrl+esc), go to process and select MediaAcck.exe, right click and select "End Process Tree".

Then go to control panel and uninstall.

You need to get rid of it all together. I would suggest working throug the malware guide at the top of this forum where it says "Do you suspect a malware (Spyware, Virus, Trojan) infection? Please start here. " :tazz:
