Hi all,

Herewith my HJT log. This has been submitted on the recommendation of PHAWGG who thinks that it may help to resolve my problem with installing Symantec' Firewall free.

As a memory jog: whenever I install the FW and everything appears to be ok, I receive a message that the Symantec Firewall "Has encountered a problem and needs to close", this from DR Watson.

I don't know if there is a problem that may arise in my using F-Secure 5.4 Anti-virus

As you can see, I have uninstalled Symantec and reverted back to Outpost until I have a resolution. As a matter of interest, there is also a problem with installing ZA Free (latest version) - this time, I also get a message that F-Secure AV has been detected and the installation will be aborted. I have approached Zone Labs in regards this. and am awaiting a reply from them. F-Secure do not ahve a patch for this problem, I have already checked with their support Web Page

No indications of problems involving malware are present in your HJT log, kevlamh.
Next step is to check the processes running at this time, for clues to reasons for conflicts.

Results of that research are documented with links to the data sources.
A file is available.

F-Secure is the system your company has chosen for Internet Security. http://www.f-secure.com
Symantec/Norton is a different company. http://www.symantec.com/index.htm

It's reasonable to assume that the exact methods each employ to provide "Internet Security" differ
somewhat and are not necessarily compatible.

Agnitum Outpost provides a free firewall, an element of "Internet Security" also. http://www.agnitum.com/.
It would seem the methods used by it's software present no conflicts with F-Secure.

Sygate does also. http://www.sygate.com/.
Zone Alarm has a free firewall. http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/home.jsp
Kerio is yet another. http://www.kerio.com/kerio.html.

Trial & error would reveal strenghs and weaknesses in these products when placed in conjunction with F-Secure.

All of the companies claim world leadership in the field.

Several other companies offer more specialized products also aimed at the problems involving security.
Legitimatly so. A firewall does not necessarily stop a downloaded trojan.
A downloaded trojan isn't necessarily going to be identified by an anti-virus software program.
A keylogger or hijacked browser page may not be "seen" by one or more of these programs.

My conclusion is this:
  • Due to the everchanging factors dealt with involving internet security,
    companies are developing new methods and trying them out in their products.
  • Some work, some work for a while, perhaps.
  • Some that might work don't work as well as others.
  • Some that work well may not do so in the presence of other software.
Therefore issues such as yours will come up.
The answer is to understand the situation as well as possible.
To the extent you can or desire to.

I've heard the axiom "If it works, don't fix it".
Some truth to it, but what worked in 2002 may not in 2005.

In your case the F-Secure is in place.
The operating system is Windows XP.
It is fully updated.

Those are your "cornerstones",
and I might add they are fine.
All other software running on your machine should
be of a kind that those allow to run properly.

:flowers: :thumbsup: Thanks, phawgg,

I appreciate your effort and feedback. I think that I will stick to what I am using and stop being adventurous.

All the best and every success,
