    that is warning that something was attempting to use you PC as a distribution point, viruses can cause it to happen, hacks into your system can do it, most common cause is some company out there is trying to use your IP as a SPAM distribution point, getting a lot of pop up lately? turning on yer firewall usually fixes the problem.
