      Urgent - Proxy servers - have I been hacked

      My desktop Kerio Personal Firewall is asking me to permit/deny incoming outgoing connection to IE3.Proxy.AOL.com and my Internet Options under LAN connection has automatically detect settings and use proxy server ticked (if I untick they just reappear on reopening)

      I'm no expert but this smells very fishy to me

      Typing this on wireless laptop with Mcafee LAN connections seem fine.

      Expert advice much appreciated

      Were you an AOL customer prior to Sky? Or have you loaded AIM or AOL's browser?

      That's a legitimate AOL proxy and I'd be rather surprised if any malware hijacked your connection to force you to use it.

      Never touched it in my life, it's bad enough running with Sky

      Deleting firewall rules and starting again to see if I can figure out what's going on
