Security warning when I go to

  1. I am a new member. When I log on to I get the following security warning:

    The current web page is trying to open a site on the internet. Do you want to allow this?

    Internet site:C://Windows/system 32/shdoclc.dll

    This has only occurred since about yesterday. I googled but search came up empty. I had techspot on my favorites then removed it, but still I get the same security warning.

    Please help.

    That is strange, corresponds to our ad server which is used by many other websites around the web since they are exclusively dedicated to serve and track net ads... which means they are very optimized, the idea is that loading ads shouldn't slowdown the site browsing, which I believe is our case.

    Only thing that comes to mind is that your browser preferences have been changed to more strict settings or perhaps some firewall or other security program you are using is overdoing its task.
