Recently installed blueyonder PCguard (firewall etc)now i'm getting the message "windows installer wants to connect to the internet".
I've not installed anything for a couple of days should i grant access ?

My "rule of thumb" is always to block applications from accessing the internet unless I know exactly what they are, or unless something stops working!

Although I use Blueyonder, I prefer to remain with the programs I'm familiar with - Zone Alarm, Avast, Ad-Aware, SpywareBlaster etc.
