hi every one thanks for reading this. i installed panda antivrus of the coverdisc and think its great. im not used to using a fire wall though. panda keeps on popping up saying c:\windows\system32\alg.exe description application layer gateway services (microsoft windows operating system). is trying to access your system. what are these and should i deny access to my system.
and norton antivirus trys sending updates. i had to uninstall norton to use panda. so should i deny access to norton completly or just keep pressing deny this time only. many thanks for all your help ozzy...
DESCRIPTION: Part of Windows XP that provides support for ICS and Internet Connection Firewall (ICF).
RECOMMENDED ACTION: If a third-party firewall warns you that ALG.exe wants access, check to make sure you're not double-firewalled. If you are, disable ICF. If you are using neither ICF nor ICS and are warned that ALG.exe is trying to access the Net, deny it. A Trojan horse or worm may be trying to use it as a backdoor.
