Each time I restart my computer, I get a popup message from Windows saying my firewall is turned off. The message disappears after a few seconds, once the computer detects that the firewall is actually on. This is what I've decided after checking in Control Panel, where it clearly shows the Windows firewall is turned on. Then I noticed there were 'exceptions' (to the firewall). Most of those look fine, but I did not recognize the above named exception (SAVnzbd-0.2.5). When I googled this, it seems to related to a news aggregator. For a time I had Newsfeed (I think that wa the name) but after a few months decided I didn't need all that info and uninstalled it. Is this 'exception' related to the newsfeed that used to be installed? Can I remove this 'exception' or shall I leave it as it? Thank you in advance.
