:wtf: :wtf: Hi all. I'm a computer virgin and have only recently got the internet, so I dont speak the lingo!
My problem is I get bombarded every few minutes by something called javaux.exe (picked up by the firewall). How do I get rid of it? It's putting me of using my computer. Help??!!

As long as your firewall is blocking it you have nothing to worry about. See if you can configure your firewall to block silently, without bothering you about it.

Why not search around for what this program does. Blocking it on your firewall will just make it shut up, it still uses up memory, processor power, and your internet connection every time it activates. A simple google search for the name of this program will usually show you what this does, and if it's bad, it will usually show you how to remove it. No use patching a gunshot with a band-aid.
