Message from Security Check

By lmcdonald ·
I just had a cable modem installed and now every couple of minutes I get a pop-up "Message From Security Check" that contains some inappropriate details.
Is there any way to stop this without a pop-up blocker?

A software firewall such as Zone Alarm should do the trick.

You can download a free version from

A software firewall is a good security measure to add to any PC connected to a broadband internet connection.

As a side note, the US government advised all of it's users to STOP using Internet Explorer until a security flaw is corrected.

I recommend that you give either Mozilla or FireFox a try.

Both have a built-in pop-up blocker.
If you install Preference Tool bar from into Mozilla, you can have a simple check box on a tool bar to use to enable and disable pop-ups.
