Windows 7: Microsoft essentials; possible malware-content.IES and low content.IES

Microsoft essentials; possible malware-content.IES and low content.IES

I have two PC one running xp and one 7s.

On one of them (7), I have been consistently getting the temporary Internet folder low content.IEs message, which it seems essentials thinks might be malware.

I wonder if it is?

On my other PC (XP)I just started to get a content- not low content-a content.IES message from essentials.

On both machines?

One low content, one just content?

Are my machines infected or is this just the usual MS?

Appreciate anything anyone can tell me.

Hello and welcome DGKASSOC mate first up please follow this - so hard helping out when one is not aware of what is in the machine - hardware and software. For example I do not know if you are running an AV or soem software that may be interfering with the system?? Now the fact that you say it happens on both machines hints at some software you are running on both.

If you are concerned re malware then run these for starters
SUPERAntiSpyware | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!
Malwarebytes | Malwarebytes Premium
AdwCleaner Download
ADW download from bleeping computer delete any rubbish found with the malware scans
(NB If you are running Kaspersky as the main AV then it might need disabling it when trying ADW because it does not like it at times)
