Hi. I'm a little miffed as to why PERSF.EXE is "Connected In" and is always receiving data. When I first noticed it was doing so, it had already received over 800kb, according to the Firewall Status application. This is a report from the Firewall Status application (I have also attached an image which I took after posting this message): It is slowing down my internet connection (dial-up, so 2kb/s is quite a lot) do I've disabled it for now. I'm thinking of trying another firewall if this is going to persist. Any recommendations? There's only one pre-requisite, which is freeware. Thanks in advance!
