    I keep getting a popup from Norton Internet Security saying "Rules automatically created for the program:Microsoft Generic Host Process for Win32 Services". This happens every few minutes or so so I am wondering what I can do to stop this happening as it is really starting to annoy me. Thanks. Roger

    You might try turning off the automatic rule creations feature and see if it alerts you and let's you manually make new rules. Then you can check out the details in the alert or popup, and see what's going on perhaps.

    When I used NIS a year or two ago, I found it to be a little quirky in that department, and as a result, stopped using it.

    Thanks for that Kerodo. I have not had one instance of the pop up today and I am wondering whether it was being caused as I altered the way my computer deals with Cookies. I read an article about safer surfing and now I have to sanction any cookies that sites want to put on my computer. I will see what happens over the next few days. Regards. Roger
