Bogus Windows Security pop-up

I get this popup several (many) times a day even though I am logged in and receiving email.


What is this and how do I get rid of it?

Hello gkendall and welcome to Seven Forums.

From what I could find out, this is a legitimate program from Microsoft. It was designed to be a replacement for Windows Messenger and is meant to be used in an office/corporate environment.

Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 R2 Product Overview - Communicator - Office.com

If what you have really is a legitimate program you should be able to uninstall it from control panel > programs and features unless this is installed on a company computer by an IT department.

bogus drives

As soon as the latest "blonder" looked over something immediately stood out! The first image here with the System Infor for Windows tools seems to lack quite a bit over what was just seen with the 7077! Have a look for yourself. http://www.freeimagehosting.net/uploads/cabc0ec822.jpg If you...
