Repeated NPF alerts..

  Piecan 17:35 08 Apr 2004

I have Norton Personal Firewall 2003 and everything has been running well. I've already done a programme scan but now I keep getting a low rated alert " A remote system is attempting to access microsoft generic host process for win32 services on your computer C:\windows\system32\svhost.exe and the only other details it gives is that it is for port 1025.

The recommended action by Norton is allow which I have done but it still keeps appearing, so I have blocked it but it still appears! Before I use the "always use this action" option on the pop up box can anyone tell me what this message means or where I can find out as I can't find anything on Symantec? Thanks.

if it is rated by norton as low risk, always allow is the best way to go. It could be a microsoft item calling home. microsoft website might have info on it.
