On a few sites I've been to,while I've been browsing,I've had a security alert. 'Warning - your computer is attempting to communicate private information.type.Bank Account.What action do you wish Norton Internet Security to take?In a little box - Block(recommended). When I visit the alert tracker log,it gives the destination. http://########/advertising/adlog.php?bannerid=etc. What is this all about?Is it common practice?Who does one complain to? I don't use this computer for anything else than trading,but it's still worrying.

I use Norton Internet Security but must admit I have never
seen that message. You must be going to some dodgy site/s ;-)

I used to get the same message from Norton when I was logged onto to Prophet.net which is a reasonable web based source of r/t charts.

Hi jonny40,
Assuming that you only give your bank account details
on secure pages - a basic security measure is to click the Tools
button at the top of the Explorer page - then click the ADVANCED
tab - scroll down until the Security list appears and then TICK
the box next to "Do not save encrypted pages to disk".
