I recently had to reformat my hard drive and now I am getting warnings from guard dog. These pop up randomly.

Two that puzzle me are:

"Credit card information is being sent to an unsecure site"

Who is this and how are they getting into my computer and what can I do apart from telling guard dog not to let it?


"An ActiveX control is trying to scan files C:|Windows\fonts\Lhandw.TFF"

Do I say yes or no to this one? What is it all about?

Also when I checked my cookie file I find one there that tells me

"Cookies notepad. Netscape cookie file. This is a generated file. Do not edit."

Can I not delete cookies from here?

Any input would be welcome. I thought I knew about computers until I got one and now find I know nothing.
