I installed network to connect my two home computers so that I could use the one printer for both computers. Dialogue said Windows would configure system to allow this, but instead Windows Firewall blocked two files and thereby preventing me from using printer.While doing the network installation, I did receive a message saying Windows had detected something(didn't say what) that might be harmful to my computer and asking if I wanted to continue blocking it. Unfortuatel, not knowing what they were referring to, I said yes.
My Lexmark Service center detected the two files being blocked. My Lexmark all in one printer model is X5650
They are: LXDUCOMS.EXE AND LXDUWBGW.EXE.
Can someone please tell me how I get to have Windows Firewall allow access to these files?
Would uninstalling Windows Firewall, if that's possible to the trick, or is there some other way
Another site suggested opening MSE and working it from there. I tried that but couldn't get it to work. I understand that MSE( MICROSOFT SECURITY ESSENTIALS) is part of Microsoft office, but mine is Office 2003 and may be too old.
I also have FREE AVG on this computer and also use Spybot. The remote computer has pay version of AVG which includes a Firewall as well. Paid AVG expires in 22 days and I will switch to Free version which does not contain Firewall.
