I have been using Look 'n' Stop V2.06 for more than a year and have been using NewsBin Version 4.32, also for more than a year--no problems. Recently I upgraded to NewsBin V5; and when I now start Newsbin V5, there are strange Look 'n' Stop application filters which pop up to ask if I authorize certain "software applications" access to the internet. These application filters reference "software applications" that are described by symbols that are not on my keyboard and are not in any obvious foreign language. I have tried both refusing as well as rejecting these "software applications". These responses by me often result in a postage-stamp-sized, dialog box titled "FWAPI" (apparently from Look 'n' Stop) with a numerical value and also with an "ok" button. Almost any sequence of responses eventually results in a "System32 error" and a timed warning for a system shut down, which eventually occurs. If I go to the Look 'n' Stop Application Filter List there are about 30 or so new "applications" with either a "?" symbol or a string of the non-keyboard symbols. I have removed these; but they return if I boot up the NewsBin V5 again. This may appear to be a NewsBin V5 problem; but I have brought this to the NewsBin Forum: http://forums.newsbin.com/viewtopic.php?t=22419 There I am told this is probably a Firewall problem. Are there any ideas about what may be going on? Any observations are appreciated in advance.
