    How can I fix this ....

    I'm running the (as yet unregistered) Sygate Pro 5.5 Firewall on a Wireless LAN connection ... sharing Internet Access through a router ...

    Everytime I boot up my system a pop up comes up soon after all the taskbar icons have loaded saying svchost.exe has been blocked ....

    I know I can disable this popup ... but I'm wondering why exactly svchost.exe is blocked everytime ... I have already preset my firewall to always allow "Generic Hosts Processes for Win32 Services" when it originally popped up.

    Is there somewhere else I need to allow svchost.exe .... I checked the Tools>Applications menu and the only entry close to svchost is the "Generic Hosts Processes for Win32 Services" which is already ticked.

    Plz help ...

    generic host isnt the only process using svchost.exe
    do a search on google or yahoo
    and ive actually found that you dont need generic host to have access
    i would credit the member that pointed that out but cant remember
    mines blocked now, but still surfin
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.
