Application Layer Gateway Service

Successfully loaded SP2. Took the choice of keeping my McAfee Firewall and Norton AV.
MS later "invited" me to download alg.exe (as above).
Is there any point in so doing? Other than its connection with ICF and firewalls, I don't really understand what it's for.

Alg.exe comes with SP2 so I don't know why you were invited to download it seperately.

If you don't intend to use the Windows firewall then you don't need it.

Set the Application Layer Gateway Service to Manual.
