Lockbr.exe giving me grief

By PG-13
Feb 4, 2006
  1. After startup, I get a Window Security notification asking me if I want to open lockbr.exe

    Can't seem to figure it out, so I have attached my log and will be grateful for any help I can get. Thanks :)

    edit: Actually forgot to attach my log. Fixed.

    Sorry about that, I actually read everything posted and had created a log, I just forgot to attach it, lol.

    I posted my own thread because that's what my dad advised me to do, so I apolgize if I went wrong somewhere.

    Also, I cleared out my cookies and updated the log in log03.

    The windows one care live log seems to replant itself at every startup. It should be noted that that is a certified MS program, as I downloaded it Friday night.

    New log attached.
