Mod Edit:  Split from https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/580047/multiple-instances-of-peerdistshdll-in-firewall-list-allowed-programs/ - Hamluis.

 

:flame: How or why should I ignore this @peerdistsh.dll,-@peerdistsh.dll,-10000 thru10004. They are there for a reason... my guess is some kind of backdoor to my computer for calling home! I am so annoyed with MS always coming up with all of these codes, with no explanations! I see new ones in my Firewall Communications box for allowing programs through! I have been trying... with difficulty to connect to VPN servers!

 

The servers have been very intermittently connecting. I am so disgusted with the different ones that I have tried, with many problems from many of the best recommended ones. After this try, I'm going to forgo trying to find one that is without complications!  It's taking up too much of my time and Data usage online to no avail! I've been fed up with MS and it's control over users computers!  :bounce:  Since I see three new @peerdistsh.dll entries in my Firewall Communications box, I resolved that this has something to do with VPN server connections! Any input on my belief of this item would be appreciated! :welcome:
