Hi .... I keep getting a popup through my sygate ... im using the Sygate free edition and im on winXP ....

An application named NT Kernel & system (file name ntoskrnl.exe) has been blocked from accessing the network.

i have ticked the box 'dont show this window again' but it keeps reappearing every few mins ... does anyone know what the NT Kernel & system , ntoskrnl.exe is and is it needed to run the comp ?

If they are the blue box pop ups from sygate, right click the tray icon and select options then ok on the general tab third down tick hide notification messages.

Cheers britto that has done the trick , it was getting pretty frustrating listening to the ping of the popup every few mins

Job done , much appreciated

Sorry should have thought about that option.
but at least someone's thinking straight, ie:britto.
