Since last night,each time I access the Internet, "Norton Internet Security" comes up with the warning box "OPTIMIZE.exe. is trying to access the Internet" and asks if I want to Block It or Permit?
I have never downloaded any programme called OPTIMIZE.exe. How did it get on my computer and please advise if it is harmful?
The risk is Medium according to Norton with no virus detected.
