Thread: Lsass is trying to connect...

    The "OS" protection component of the the medium program control setting is defninately causing the alerts. When I set the control to "low", the alerts stop upon reboot. If I set it to medium, the alert imediatly pops up. I tried this:

    1. Deleted the program from ZA.
    2. Set the program control to "low"- rebooted... no alert.
    While the program control was on "low", I manually configured the LSA shell to super trusted, complete access to everything but e-mail- rebooted.. no alert.
    3. Set the program control to "medium"- the lsass alert imediately popped up. I gave it full permission and rebooted again- the alert is back upon boot.

    So the question now is: do I really need to have my program control set on medium? I have full up to date antivirus running, I run up to date anti spyware checks regularily, and I'm behind a rounter firewall. Am I really sacrificing protection in order to get rid of an annoying alert that pops up once every time I start my computer? Or should I just keep dealing with this manually?

    Of course any other suggestions would be welcome as well.

    Program control at Low is Learning Mode which means that any new (or existing) program that attempts to access the network, or act as a server will be automatically allowed to do this and the setting remembered.

    A bit like replacing Homer Simpson with a chicken in that Simpsons episode, where the chicken just sits there pressing the same button again and again. Except that ZA is better than a Homer Simpson...

    Anyway don't use learning mode except when you definitely have a clean system and you want to quickly configure the firewall by running all of your network-aware programs one by one. And in that case, Medium setting with SmartDefense in Auto mode is safer for doing that.
