Using the last Sygate 5.6 debug build before they stopped developing it. I noticed that an application that had no known setting in the firewall was automatically given access, so to test something, I removed all apps, closed Firefox, and fired it up again. Sure enough, ekrn.exe was requesting permission -- not Firefox or anything else, but ekrn.exe. This is echoed in other programs requesting access (email clients, etc.), meaning that actual outbound control just became rather hit-or-miss. So this is either: 1. Nod32 insisting on control over net traffic, or; 2. Some issue with that last Sygate debug build that I've never seen mentioned here on Wilders. Thoughts?
