Re: Buffer Overflow Blocked

Hi Laxman,

Sorry about the delayed response, This popup indicates that your system resources are over used by other programs. Possiblily this can happen if you have a Malware infection on the computer. Best solution as of now is to run a full scan on the computer.Incase if you still get the poup , kindly provide me the complete details on the file that has been detected by Buffer over flow.
