    I was looking at the event log while ago and saw these messages - actually a repeating sequence of them identical except for the time tags. Does the antivirus program really contain a personal firewall?

    11/27/2008 6:42:27 PM Personal firewall An error occurred while starting proxy server. Checking of application protocols (POP3, HTTP) will not work.

    11/27/2008 6:42:09 PM Personal firewall An error occurred while starting services. Analysis of application protocols (POP3, HTTP) will not function.

    The antivirus does not have a firewall. The suite has a firewall and spam protection.

    Right...so why does the log have a message identified as coming from the "personal firewall" module" - I don't have the suite, only the V3 antivirus?

    Are you giving NOD32 the appropriate permissions within your firewall?

    The HTTP scanner is part of the ESS firewall, hence the message.

    Is that necessary even with windows firewall? Reason I ask is I didn't change anything with my firewall when installing V3.

    OK...so this is just some code shared/lifted from the security suite and not really a full fledged "personal firewall", right?

    thanks for the responses
