    Hi

    Just doing an Online Armor install and it's querying pfsvc.exe as a start up program.

    Very odd. Not seen this before. Google comes up with a reference to a security product by something I've never heard of called Omniquad.

    Anyone know anything about pfsvc.exe ?

    Will block until I get some response.

    Thanks.

    Hi

    Think ok. Search My Computer and it comes up with it being part of Dynamic Security Agent.

    Whats the Omniquad Google reference I wonder :doubt:

    Hi all Old Monk,

    If i'm not wrong pfsvc.exe is the firewall part of DSA, launched by DSA if no firewall is detected during setup.
    This service could conflict with OA FW but i don't have any idea of the real impact to have this process active.
