Would really like to understand what causes applications to try to access the internet. What happens if access is denied.?
How can this be stopped? Do they maintain a log of every attempt ? Can the log be found and deleted?
Particularly annoying is every attempt to read a pdf file or opening an Excel file. and Windows Defender.
The destination IP's : 127.001 Port 1074, 22.214.171.124 HTTP, and 126.96.36.199DNS respectively.
I have been denying every request, but have not been able to work out what is the trigger for the Windows Defender application MpCmdRun.exe to startup.
