i have the norton's firewall up and i keep getting the same message a bunch of times a day. the message is:
"A remote system is attempting to access Microsoft Generic Host Process for Win32 Services on your computer"
and then it asks me if i want to permit (recommendec) or block or configure manually. i always choose block but i wanted to know if i should permit it and what this actually is. thanks in advance.

I have Norton Internet Security and Norton Systemworks Pro both 2003 versions. I allowed Microsoft Generic Host Process for Win32 Services to come and go from my computer onto the net and I have no problems with any way of my computer.

I believe this is what Windows finds out if your connected to the net and does a few net jobs such as checking auto updates and etc. When I denyed this once before, I would not get some of my Windows components to access the net. So my suggestions are to accept Norton's recommendations.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
