Anyone know why I have a file that seems related to real networks and grokster on my machine??

 

 

Its in IEs activeX folder,,and I have never had "real" anything installed and never had anything from grokster or any other file sharing software installed.

 

 

 

The url below is listed in the file,,but leads staight to a download.

Seriously though, the only way I can see that those ActiveX controls got on your machine without actually having visited their sites is someplace you've been put them there without your knowledge. Security settings? Either that, or someone in your household has been using your computer while you were away..... :mrsgreen: -kd5-

NOBODY touches my machine,,so if it got there it was me who let it get there,,I am going to delete it and it will either break something or it won't and It will be gone,,just can't figure out why its there is all?? :angry::mrgreen: v

If it's just in your Temp Internet Files then most likely the CAB file was just downloaded and you said NO to the certificate, if you saw one at all. If you see it installed in Tools | Internet Options | General | Settings | View Objects then it DID get installed through an Internet download. Usually you would have had to see a certificate, but if you have anyone listed in Tools | Internet Options | Content | Security, any content from those publishers could get through without you seeing a certificate. Depending on your Tools | Internet Options | Security settings it may have downloaded but not run.
