    I have just installed sygate V5 and it's asking me if I want to allow services.exe and svchost to connect. I'm so useless at firewalls and really really need some advide as to what I should allow and what I should block o_O

    HI De cat, I think you will find that these connections are internal i.e. "Local host" 0.0.0.0 > 0.0.0.0 and as such need to be allowed. They do not connect outside of your PC or LAN if you have one.

    You're welcomed. I would say it would be safe to let them slide by. just block server rights to them. :)
