    Default repeat advanced programme alerts

    when i start my pc i get 2 za advanced alerts as follows
    (first)
    services and controller application is trying to use generic host process win 32 services to act as a server.
    application-services
    source i.p-0.0.0.0 port135

    (second)
    services and controller application is trying to use generic host process win 32 services to access the internet

    application-services.exe
    destination i.p-255.255.255.255 dhcp

    im not pc savvy at all so could someone tell me if this is normal.
    ive included the following information to assist.
    smart defence advisor shows the second alert as ntl who is indeed my isp..
    under advanced tab i have "enable advanced programme control" ticked...
    "generic host process" has 4 green ticks and 3 green bars...
    any advice in laymans terms would be very much appreciated

    i recently put permissions to "ask" under server> trusted next to everything in my programme list because i read on here that very few programmes should use this. is there any exceptions?

    win xp home
    zass9

    p.s. my firewall zones are
    new network> internet
    loopback adapter>trusted

    If you do not master well your security tool try to keep its defaults. They will ensure maximum compatibility and optimal security and avoid you block essential system services.

    thanks fax for your quick response.
    finally , as i have "tinkered" the programme permission settings im thinking of doing a clean install(ive got the instructions) and leaving everything on default. recommend?

    p.s. it never ceases to amaze me how yourself and others give up their own time to assist in so many ways.i suppose a lot of people on here take it for granted. I dont. A big thanks to you and the other dedicated helpers.

    Thank you for the nice words, we are all just all users here trying to help each other. Sometimes works sometimes not...

    Yes, you could simply remove and reinstall the latest version 9.3.037.000 and keep defaults including the first 21 days in autolearn.

    If you are attached to a router 192.168.X.X you can also think of settings the network as TRUSTED instead of internet. It will perfectly protect you from internet calls but ensure a trouble free sharing of resources on your LAN.
