firewall not blocking access?
Since I re-subscribed a few months ago, under Status-Inbound Protection-
my firewall says "the firewall has blocked one access attempt".
This seems odd
after four months internet use.
Previously I had hundreds of access attempts blocked each week.
Also, spyware is slipping through, the same kind all the time (beagle., etc). A scan detects and deletes them, but shouldn't they not get through in the first place?thanks Dan

Re: firewall not blocking access?
Firewalls control what goes through the network and what can sort of access programshave to it - they don't stop spyware being installed.The firewall can stop the spyware doing anything on the network, but you need anti-spyware to remove the spyware.
