    I have ESET set to stop the inbound/outbound messages going to
    who knows where. I just deny most of them.
    HOWEVER - two are appearing over and over again:
    BING Bar
    Microsoft Seaport Search Enhancement Broker

    I don't want either of these what ever they are and
    would like to know how to set ESET so they don't appear in my
    face all the time
    Please be very specific as making rules seems to be beyond me.
    Thanks for any help.

    Easiest solution is setting the Firewall Filtering Mode to Automatic Mode rather than Interactive Mode. There are instructions with screenshots on the following ESET KB Article:

    http://kb.eset.com/esetkb/index?page=content&id=SOLN2868&ref=wsf

    If you prefer staying in Interactive Filtering Mode, when those windows come up, check the box for "Remember Action (Create Rule)" And then click either Allow or Deny, whichever you prefer.

    Thank you for responding Dwomack.
    And thank you for the detailed explanation.
    Even I ought to be able to follow that.

    In the Bing entry:
    Trusted Zone in: can't modify to deny
    Internet in : can't modify to deny
    I guess that is ok as the other fields contain deny
    Am I right?

    Its worth just sticking to automatic filtering because the antivirus modules prevents anything bad getting through anyway. The firewall and antivirus compliment one another.
