    Unknown Program trying to access Internet (Windows 98, office 2000)

    Can some body assist? Over the last two days, when I boot my PC Zonealarm tells me that "Microsoft Q Mgr" is trying to access the internet. Can somebody tell me what this QMgr is, and where it may have come from? I haven't installed any new software recently and nothing new shows in the Start Up folder.

    Thanks
    Bob

    thats MSMQ - messaging queue manager.

    what OS are you using? it's a winnt/2k server applicarion used for communation with SQL for the most part, but also has other uses.

    you can probably safely block it, unless you are connecting to a lan at work or using SQL and need it.

    also - not sure how much of it, if any, office xp or VS6 install with their db utilities.

    Well, if its a WinNT/2k prog, I'm b#@@$red if I know how it got on there, as I'm using Win98. My daughter is using Yahoo Chat and MS Chat all the time, perhaps she may know somtething about it.... trouble is, she's on there at nighttime while I'm asleep, and asleep while I'm up and about, so we rarely meet (sociably, anyway <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>)

    Thanks for your help

    Just to let you know..that is part of the newest update from MSN Messenger...if you don't want it to load up at startup..just use msconfig in run...then uncheck QMgr box...I did that...I use WinME <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
