I use PCCillin as my antivirus. Whenever I am on the net, my capsule icon turns to a bell to tell me the computer is being got at. I know it is usually a cookie, but can anybody put my mind at rest and tell me what:
'Netbios Browsing' and 'Ping attack' mean, please.

Netbios - click here

Ping - click here

PCCillin comes with a firewall? Your computer is being looked at by other computer to see if it can share its resources (netbios). Which it ill not do anyway. The ping is just a check to see if your PC is still conneced to the internet.

There harmless.

Thanks Powerless, I just needed to know in case I was on the road to trouble.

Sorry, I forgot to answer your query Powerless. Yeah, I got it on the modem driver CD when I changed to BT Broadband.
