    Running ESET SS beta 5.
    Windows 7 Pro
    I have set the firewall to interactive mode.
    I get this message popping up about 40,000 times a day.
    Always click DENY.
    "system home" (192.168.1.254) Source unknown.
    What is ito_Oo_O
    I have no way of knowing if I should accept it.
    I believe I should have total control of what's going/coming
    on my puter.

    Can you include a few screen shots of these messages and what was clicked or done to cause the window to be displayed? 192.168.1.254 is a default IP address for your router so including only that information doesn't help to narrow down the source of the issue or what/if the problem may be.

    Thanks for answering.
    I will try to take a screen shot the next time I get it and
    post it here.

    Hi Dwomack,
    I have attached a .txt file of the offending pop.
    I was not able to upload a .GIF file because of ESETs
    size restriction. I hope this will suffice. If not tell me what
    else I can do.

    Based on the screenshot, it appears your system is trying to communicate with your router. I don't see any reason to deny this action. This would also explain why it's showing up 40,000+ times a day.
