    Possible cause(s):
    Hotmail, Window Messenger,etc..

    More info here

    solution by mooker:
    To get rid of that, go to Tools/Options in MSN Messenger, and then click on the Privacy tab, and check the box that says "This is a shared computer so don't display my tabs." Restart Messenger, and you're all set

    kempouk you are absolutely correct. And if I had been using hotmail or MSN at the time, I might have thought differently. But this was logged on my Firewall, and I wasn't using MSN nor Hotmail...
    It was very wierd..
