    Default Should These Boxes Be Checked? > No.

    Oslod helped me 'greatly' on another problem. For all you newbies....this is a great forum!

    Now...since my other problem is fixed, I have another question cuz I don't want to mess anything up.

    These boxes are 'not' checked in Advanced Settings in Firewall:

    Allow outgoing DNS/DHCP in Trusted Zone on high security.
    Allow outgoing DNS/DHCP in Internet Zone on high security.

    Should they be checked to allow an Antivirus (and whatever other programs I have Trusted) to communicate and update automatically?

    Thanks in advance.

    Not needed and not related.
    The dhcp and the dns are already added to the Trusted zone, so ignore the Internet zone for these.
    The Trusted Security Zone slider should be at Medium not High.

    Thanks to you both. My settings are both on 'high'. Will Trusted Zone on 'high' prevent my computer from getting updates from Microsoft, ZA, Antirus, etc.?

    I'll leave the other boxes unchecked.

    Indirectly. It will hinder connections with your router and with programs getting the domain name lookups correctly or speedily.
    Best for you to stick what works and is proven and not change things - set the Trusted Security Zone slider to Medium and not High.
