    What can be causing that??

    I use the latest version of Smart Security on the latest Windows 7 version.

    Thanks

    What exact problem with Itunes do you observe when the packets are blocked?

    Well, there is no problem with iTunes... But the firewall is blocking something...

    Actually it's the role of the firewall to block unwanted packets, mine is blocking something every second. Unless blocking packets causes certain problems there's no need to pay attention to that.

    I clearly understand the role of a good firewall... The problem I have here is that the firewall is blocking something that isn't dangerous... And for me, a false positive is clearly a problem!

    If your firewall is blocking something every second, there is really something wrong going on! ;)

    Thanks
