A little help

    My Sygate firewall keeps telling me that NT Kernel and system was blocked.
    The big problem is that when I'm online the warning shows and the game minimize,
    which is annoying because eventually I always crash.
    Can please some PC Guru give me a tip for what to do to stop this?
    Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    Should be an option in your firewall settings to allow the files.

    Yes it is Abdul, but it is alright to allow this NT Kernell stuff to get into the PC?
     
  4. If it's a game it's ok to allow it through, obviously be wary of other files.

    Lets see...(my English is pretty basic, but I will try hard) :confused2:

    I used to run Avira AV untill it began to stop scanning at 24%.
    Unistalled it and tried the Comodo AV without firewall (as I had Sygate)
    I realised after two days that Comodo AV and Sygate were incompatible.
    Comodo AV just took away my Sygate firewall. :shock:
    Unistalled Comodo AV. Installed AVG AV and Sygate firewall.
    Everything ran ok. Made a full update and scan with:
    AVG AV, SuperAntiSpyware, Anti-Malware Malwarebites, Advanced SystemCare, IObit Security 360, A-Squared and Registry Medic.
    I don't do any danger downloads (xxx movies, photos, musics or whatever)
    I just download mods, tracks, protection tools, etc...
    I even have installed Firefox extras as, ADBLOCK PLUS and WOT.

    I run all security programs with automatic update disabled.
    But when I installed Sygate firewall I forgot to go to tools-options-updates
    and untick Automatically Check For New Versions.
    I really don't know if could be that or what. :hypnotized:
    Anyway, last night I had set the firewall to allow NT Kernell system to run.

    Lets hope for good results.

    Cheers

    As i know, most of the firewalls have both free and pro versions, and their free versions are usually useless :(

    But there maybe something out there both free and good.

    EDIT : I found a firewall called " Comodo ". Seems good and in some sites they value it highly. But it has both free and pro versions aswell .

    Yes Daniel, I have a Belkin N Wireless Modem Router.
    I willgive a try to PCTOOLS firewall, I have it on work
    and it seems to work great.Or maybe the COMODO firewall....
    I have heard many people saying they had a few problems with ZONE ALARM firewall.
    As a PC noob I might skip ZA firewall for now. :p

    I just use the firewall on my router. Alot of people I know do this to :nod:
     
  13. Followed the link to grc just to play a little and much to my suprise, my firewall is doing what it should. That site shows that I am running in total stealth mode. :)

    So that the rest of you know, I am running McAfee firewall and AV.
