    MS errors

    Anyone else getting these error messages from Microsoft download center?

    ERROR
    The requested URL could not be retrieved

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    While trying to retrieve the URL: http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...1.2-IG-ENU.EXE

    The following error was encountered:

    Unable to forward this request at this time.
    This request could not be forwarded to the origin server or to any parent caches. The most likely cause for this error is that:

    The cache administrator does not allow this cache to make direct connections to origin servers, and
    All configured parent caches are currently unreachable.

    You can run, but you can't hide. Yes, it's legal. Update works. I'm just getting these errors intermittently when trying to download stuff from download.microsoft.com.

    Btw, what exactly does that error message mean?

    my guess is spyware tunneling your connection

    but that is an un qualified guess

    you should check with the latest spyware programs to make sure your not tunnelled

    :runs as well:

    Tunneling? I've got MS antispy installed, and it found zippo yesterday. I'm running an ad-aware scan now. What should I look for?

    update:
    This is what ad-aware found
    WHENU.DESKTOPTOOLBAR
    »»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»
    obj[9]=File : C:\WINDOWS\Restart.EXE

    What the ?<* is it? And would that be the cause of the grief?

    Further edit:
    Eighty-Seven Percent of WhenU
    Users Are Unaware They Are Using It
    Charming. I STILL wanna know how this trash got on my system.

    He morphed into his orthodontically-challenged girlfriend and went for plastic surgery. Or a paper bag over his head.
