Since I installed SP2, each time I start-up my computer I ger a 'Windows Security [email protected] window which states as follows:-
To help protect your computer, Windows Firewall has blocked some features of this program.

Do you want to keep blocking this program?

Name: backWeb-4448364

Publisher: Unknown

It then offers me 3 options:-
1.Keep Blocking, 2.Unblock, 3.Ask Me Later.

I always click on 3 but would it be safe to click on 1.

Make sure you don't need it before removing it.

I found and removed it about a year ago only to discover that it was my av which used it to auto update. Totally trashed my system so I had to put it back.
