Hello,

I just did a complete format on my computer 2 nights ago, starting from a freshly clean system. I am using Comodo Firewall on Windows XP (home), which has been very good to me, but has since last night, started showing several & climbing high severity events. These high severities started with "svchost.exe" & have now moved onto others, such as "ImApp.exe", "iexplorer.exe", "msnmsgr.exe", etc..
I'm feeling a tad confused about this, as i've used Comodo for a long time now & have not had this issue with it before, so i'm not sure if there are any real issues with it, anything to be concerned about, or is it simply that Comodo is just being finicky. Please have a look at my log & tell me if you see anything wrong...thank you!

Here is my log...

Log looks clean. Is it possible that these are just alerts for when an application tries to connect to the internet for the first time through comodo?

That's great news! Someone did suggest that it could just be alerts for when applications try to connect to the internet for the first time through comodo & I did think that was a possibility, but when I had used comodo before, I did not have this high priority issue with it at all, which is what made me think perhaps there could be a problem. My computer does seem to be running smoothly & I also clean it up daily using disc cleanup, spybot search & destroy(just installed), spycatcher & registry fix...all of which work very well. I truly appreciate your response to my log & thank you very much!! :thumbsup:
