Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Those names are just enough "off" to be suspicious. Internet Explorer might be blocking it for a very good reason!
Virus and Salutations Center says to use MS Safety Scanner, but IE blocks this program? What's up? Is it safe or not?
In this excerpt from Answercast #19, I take a look at a mysterious "Virus and Salutations Center" and suggest a deeper look.
I have no idea. There are two things that are going on here:
I have never heard of such a thing and I suspect that it is not something in Windows. It leads me to believe that perhaps you are already infected with malware that is trying to get itself deeper into your machine.
There's Microsoft Security Essentials, which I strongly recommend. But MS Safety Scanner is not a term that I've heard of as legitimate anti-malware software.
Internet Explorer is blocking the program... probably because it's malware. Probably because IE should be blocking it!
So my recommendation is to triple check exactly what it is you're looking at. Make sure that it is legitimate. It sounds like it's not.
