I am unsure what to allow and what not too, I get alerts everytime I connect to the internet telling me that, "Generic Host Process for Win 32" has changed, if I allow the change all seems ok, if I block the change then I get a "page cannot be displayed" page. Ok simple enough.....but it shows .dll files being changed, like 6 of them, everytime I connect??? Confusing. Also while here a little while ago posted a reply to my other topic I got an "Attack Detection" alert on my Firewall and this is what it showed: 12:29:14 PM My address
And these are the "Suspicious Packets" that were logged at the same time:
12:29:05 PM UDP (33435)
12:29:12 PM UDP (33437)
12:29:14 PM TCP (1189)
12:29:14 PM UDP (1026)
12:29:19 PM UDP (33441)

Then while posting about the Attack detection Alert I lost my internet connection for about 2.5 hours, called my ISP and they said it showed me as still connected and did so for 2.5 hours, was still on phone with them when I was finaly able to reconnect. Came directly back here and made this post. Any advice?

I have now stopped using Outpost, I don't remember exactly what .dll's were changing. I'm using Kerio Personal Firewall now which seems easier to use and setup. Am having problems with cookies but I have another post started about that. Thanks Grinler!
