MW blocked malicious site/attack pop-up while Offline


Recommended Posts

I posted this in another part of MW forums and was directed to post here. I guess this is where all the Experts are. ;)  I though, am not one of them, as you can tell. :lol: Hi folks. How's it going? I have an odd question that I cannot seem to find an answer for. I have MW Pro because I have found it to be the best software for what I need; and for the price; it Can't be beat. My question is: My Comcast cable service was interrupted for over 4 hours during the last snow storm 3/12/14. While the internet was out of service I disconnected my computer from the modem ;over 8+ hours; and ran MW full scan while I had the chance. As usual it found nothing, which means it's doing it's job. Now for the problem. During that 8+ hour down time; I kept getting a MW pop-up balloon every so often as if I was surfing the net, stating that MW blocked a potentially harmful incoming attack/site. Why on Earth would That pop-up? I was not connected to the net and my desktop does not have any wi-fi connected to or installed in. I do have Magic-Jack but it to was unplugged from the computer at that time. PC: eMachines 1200, OS: XP Home 2003. I little help or info would go a long way with this issue. It was quite annoying. :wacko:
