    How can I find out for sure that my computer is being hacked into? I have very good reason to believe that is what is happening. Some people who have no axcess to my e-mail know things that only the person I sent it to should know. I suspect someone who might have a motive?

  • SAV & Cisco IronPort Email Security Plug-In

    Cisco IronPort Email Security Plug-In 7.1 is installed in OUtlook 2007 client. Symantec AntiVirus 10.1.6.6010 launches Windows Installer to install something from Symantec AntiVirus.msi. What is it trying to install?  The MSI file used to install SAV isn't enough...it "wants" something else.
