I've installed a few programs since buying eset and I have "interactive" mode turned on in the firewall settings. Occasionally when installing a program it prompts me that said program is trying to connect to a host or remote computer. Does the same when I run the programs. Reason I ask is because I selected deny on one of the programs and it stopped working. It will still start up but prompts me to allow it to connect to host or remote computer. I have no problem allowing it, just wanted to know if ESET was asking permission to allow programs to phone home?
