SVCHOST.EXE is a Generic Service Host Process for Win32 Services. It does require Internet access for such things as Windows Update, but it does not need to "act as server." The recommendation is to set to Allow or to Ask. You will normally see several instances of svchost as active processes.

You might receive pop up messages in the lower right corner of the screen concerning either of these being blocked. Checking the box to disable this pop up might not work ... and it keeps happening.

Versions 5.5 and 5.6 known to be affected.

To fix this issue.
Open up the Sygate console menu.
Click Tools -> Options
In the [General] Tab place a check in the Hide notification messages block.
Click OK and close the console.

ntoskrnl.exe - NT Kernel & System is a standard Windows service that initializes the kernel and drivers needed during a session.

Hope this helps...:)
