Thread: Firewall Question

  1. #1
    So...I've just recently started to actually use a firewall while surfing the net so i'm quite new to that.Yeah,I know...I'm a jackass internetnoob who's that stupid not to use a firewall what so ever But now that i'm using it it's interesting to see how much incomming and outgoing traffic there is even when I'm not activelly surfing the web ...very nice indeed B)
    But I've got some questions about some apps that always seem to start up when I'm going online,and i don't have a clue of what they are.All I know is that the dll-file sends information(I think)to a site from time to time and I just want to know if i can block these things from doing these or am I supposed to let this happen?
    Anyways,here's a screenshot of what i'm talking about:

    Specially the backweb thingy sounds a bit spyware-ish.
    And what's with the yellow questionmarks?

    One other thing:didn't sygate have a stealth-option in it's firewall?
    I thought I saw that when i didn't have the pro at first but it was marked grey because it would only be available in pro?

    Google the processes you're not sure of. Install & run Spybot Search&Destroy and Adaware 6 to get rid of the crap on your system. Yes Sygate PF is a little more limited than the Pro version.

    I use a layered protection scheme. I use little programs that do specific things. Not bulky programs that try to do everything.

    My current protection is all freeware: Avast!4 home AV, Sygate personal firewall, SpywareBlaster, RegistryProt 2.0, xp-AntiSpy, Adaware6, SpyBot S&D & ScripTrap. These little free programs stop virtually everything.

    yes, backweb is generally reccomended to get rid of.

    why don't you do this:

    Code: scan and save a log.   copy and paste it in this thread.   Do not fix anything without advice.
