    You can allow svchost.exe to allow the internet it needs the access for some programs.

    Now on the other end if you have something like svchost32.exe trying to access the internet.... PLZ denie that else you might end up having more trouble then anything else.

    Hey Litec

    Could you provide us with some Details? Operating System and Look ‘n’ Stop Version Informatics would be a start.

    And I’m assuming Application Filtering Layer is functioning otherwise you would of indicated otherwise.

    Also you may find http://www.wilderssecurity.info/pg16.shtml quite interesting depending...

    Enjoy :)

    hi FluxGFX, thx for the info on svchost32.exe.

    hi Phant0m, my OS is XP without SP1, LnS Ver is 204p2 with enhanced-ruleset.

    yes, Application Filtering Layer is functioning properly, i m using MyIE2 and Proxomitron, both have outbound access.

    but i blocked IE completely because doing so enable me to pass all leak tests successfully ;-]

    thx very much for the link, excellent infomation, i m wondering why LnS didnt prompt me on those file like:

    ALG.EXE
    SVCHOST.EXE
    LSASS.EXE

    etc....

    It appears to me the Look ‘n’ Stop Application Filtering Layer isn’t becoming functional soon enough to detect and Control these Client System Files. I would recommend consider using “ActivatedSoon Flag”, further Informatics is giving on http://www.wilderssecurity.info/pg7.shtml.

    Regards,
