whilst doing windows update (for the first time) on a new 2003 server box, something is attempting to redirect my browser session or part of it to view.atdmt.comi know about this because the server has "internet explorer enhanced security configuration" installed. this, of course, displays a pop up telling me the site i'm going to is not in the trusted zone (and from there you have to click add or you browse no further...)so, what is view.atdmt.com?(i've googled and read some, but is it a trojan, malware, spyware, virus or microsoft??)thx in advance!edit:http://advisor.aol.com/adspecs/addlThirdPartyAtlas.shtmlstill, is view.atdmt.com malware or spyware or whatware??

Hello,The view.atdmt.com site is hosted by Atlas Solutions, a company which provides services to other companies for running online marketing campaigns.If you go to Microsoft's web site to download Internet Explorer 7.0 directly, you are redirected through switch.atdmt.com in the course of downloading the file.In this case, I would guess Microsoft is using Atlas Solutions as an outside auditor in order to confirm the number of downloads of their new web browser, but that's just a guess on my part.Like many marketing companies (and other web sites, for that matter), Atlas Solutions probably uses cookies to track people accessing their site. You may or may not be able to block cookies from their various hosts and still access various web sites, although you may have to do things like enter your username and password or re-enter other preferences each time that you do.RegardsAryeh Goretsky

it's just scary to be warned that another site is being informed about you when you are at microsoft, minding your own business...
