Was it an error message? What do you mean by text? It could be one of them netsend messages. The easist way to get rid of them is by using a firewall.

Its likely that this certain process will restart when you reboot your computer, meaning it is a trojan. Get a virus scanner and get rid of it..

Yeah you've probably downloaded some dodgy file of an email some where. Firewalls are never 100% fool proof either, the best sure way to be safe is to use a router.

I have been hacked into from this site, I informed the mods, and action was taken, as i had proof. Is it only happening on this site? or on others? with me it was only UKL. but I would advise a virus check, and check to see if any malicious files have been planted, particularly in shared folders, i.e. shared documents, if you use kazaa. also any folders with the world download, or upload.:rolleyes:

If they use kazaa, i would reccommend stopping, as you get as many viruses as you can wave a stick at when downloading.
