Hi phenix,

Are you being redirected to Webunstop.net?

Thanks Snick for responding.
The error message has ESET Internet Security in the upper left corner.
So I think it is caused by the ESET Company.
The message window just stays there and a counter runs.
I am baffled. Thought I had all kinds of security precautions set.
I have Windows update turned off.

AS SIW2 stated, No it is not an ESET Smart Security program.
Excellent free Malware, Adware, & PUP scanners, run them and see what they say.
Malwarebytes
ADWCleaner now owned by Malwarebytes

I ran all those programs and they found nothing.
I uninstalled Malwarebytes and reinstalled it. Then it found 7 items and quarantined
6 of them. Nothing to do with webunstop that I could see.
I think the ESET message had something to do with notifications which I closed
and disabled them.
The ESET message is now gone. I have no idea if it will come back.
To my knowledge I didn't find or uninstall Webunstop.

ESET questions
Ok, my main question is this. I know that W7 has a compatibility mode, so would I be able to get ESET NOD32 to work 100% w/ windows 7? If so could someone give me instructions (don't have to be detailed, just point me to how to get in compatibility mode for ESET). I'm wondering because I like ESET...
