Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

a couple of messages that have started showing up lately

running W7 on a wireless modem, security essentials, (gosh, I haven't had any problems in a while - I forgot what all you like to know up front )

I keep getting these two pop up messages:





it SEEMS like they show up after the computer has gone into dormancy but I am not 100% in fact, I won;t swear they both show up together every time, but certainly they are often both there - they don't seem to have any effect and I usually just close them, but what/why are they there?

any advice?

2. This is a problem with Win 7

When it goes into idle or sleep mode it disables the network connection. When it wakes up it tries to reconnect with a new IP from the router, then it argues with itself.
Easiest work around is to reset your modem/roter.
