Hello. I hope that it's okay to post about two problems here. I'll separate if necessary. 1) I've been using the Netstat feature under the System Analysis menu, and have been noticing a remote TCP connection which I can't kill, to 193.108.153 (sorry - not sure of port number; I just had one which closed out, but recording to clipboard didn't capture the info). I know that there has been an issue with Micro$oft delegating some duties or other to deploy.akamaitechnologies.com, which is at this address. Zone Alarm Pro blocks some attempted connections to akamai, but others are getting through, presumably by a backdoor in my set-up (I've a DG834 router, & run Win XP, as well as ZA Pro, TDS-3, McaFee VS Enterprise 7.1, & other apps). When you right-click the process which is usually titled "TIME WAIT," the kill option is grayed out. I know that there is probably no threat to my PC, but I do wonder what info MS &/or Akamai are gathering without telling me, so your help would be appreciated, compadres 2) I have twice had the message recently, upon running a full TDS-3 scan "[Locked File] Couldn't open c:\documents and settings\administrator\local settings\temp\a~nsisu_.exe for read access, file is locked". I tried running a scan in safe mode, as the Administrator, with the same result. Any ideas, please? Thanks a mill.
