    I have Vista Premium 32bit and ESET Smart Security lastest version (I believe). Version 4.0.437.0

    For the last week or so the firewall logs have been showing 2 items in brown ink and I don't know if brown ink is as scary as RED ink is and if my logs are worthy of contacting ESET on the web. (I truly have no idea at all if these logs are serious problems or not. All my settings, every one, is DEFAULT.) Maybe you all can help me out before I go that route. Here are the 2 messages that I Googled to no avail - at least nothing at all that I actually could understand:

    1) Incorrect IP packet checksum


    2) Incorrect TCP packet checksum

    Any idea at all what these messages mean or why I might be getting them? Most importantly, what action, if any must I take? Can I delete these brown logs or should I keep them?


    Thank you all in advance. Have a GREAT & SAFE holiday weekend/vacation.

    Thank you for the link. But it's all Greek to me. I don't understand a single word of it and that's the honest truth. All technical jargon and I don't have a translator handy. Appreciate the post though.

    Maybe somebody can please TRANSLATE that for me? I'd very much appreciate that as I do not know if I am in any kind of trouble here. Bad, bad position to be in IMHO.

    Thanks again and wish me luck.

    nothing to worry about and you can delete those logs. if they come back, post again and be prepared to do some investigation even in Greek ;)

    Thank you. The last ones were a couple of days ago. I'll delete them and if they come back, I'll post here as you very kindly advised.

    You did a good thing and put a dingbat geezer's mind to rest. :thumb:

    Thanks again.
