Periodically I get an error message which says "PFwall.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. Please tell Microsoft about this".Then there is a box saying " Send error report and another saying dont send". You click on the one you want. I click on Dont Send. Can anyone tell me what this is all about and how can I stop it please? My OS is xp home, Broadband. Meshuga.

Are you running the Preventon firewall? If so, that is what is generating the error.

Hi VoG. Yes I do run preventon . What can I do about it please. It happenned when I turned a light off in the room. Could this be caused by a mometary frequency change in the mains. I noticed that the preventon icon in the task bar had gone although it always comes back. Otherwise the PC works as normal. Any suggestions please. Meshuga.

If you click on the send report button it will send a report of the error to Microsoft, you don't get a personal reply it goes into their database of problems. Are you by any chance using 2 firewalls? M/S one and zonealarm for instance because using 2 at the same time will cause an error.

Hi VoG™ ;o)

Hi Djohn :o)

I would try the old favourite: uninstall then reinstall Preventon.

Hi Djohn, Only running preventon FW, no other.Will uninstall and reinstall as per VoG. Many thanks to you both. Meshuga.
