I just resumed my PC from hibernation and CMF told me explorer.exe was trying to execute memory..

How can I find out more about this alert?

I want to know because I had the exact same alert a few weeks ago and I had clicked allow, after which my computer started locking up, my user account disappeared and I found I had a trojan virus - all of which took me about a week to fix.

Naturally this time I clicked the "kill" button ;D

Is there any way to find out what exactly caused this alert/attack?

Stack overflows like this in 99% is not a false alert. What version of OS do you have ?

Windows XP Home SP2. I doubt it is a false alert either, as last time it happened I ended up with a trojan virus.

I wish I had more info as to what caused it - do I have some other virus on my PC now that is causing it - or was it from a website?
