    Hello!

    I have the latest Sunbelt firewall downloaded today. I've installed it to test and it worked nice, except for 2 leaktests that where failed: DNStester and Advanced Keylogger Leaktest (AKLT).

    Both can succesfully run into my computer without any prompt from Kerio: except for initial start from within Windows Explorer.

    On my friend's computer for DNStester he receives an alert saying something like: "This program tries to perform a DNS cleaning, etc" and for AKLT an alert about a global hook. I receive nothing. :(
    I've set it using the maximum security settings. What can I do?
    Thank you!

    You can complement it with a good HIPS.

    It already has a built-in HIPS. And if on my friend's PC is succesfully blocking them what is wrong on my computer ?

    Well, according to Matousec, Sunbelt 4.5.916 fails the DNStester. I am not sure how your friend managed to get alerts on the test. May be he/she is using another HIPS software in addition to Sunbelt?
