Hi there,

I just got my computer back on line after a Panda Software trial messed up
my PC for last week (XP Home)...Anyway...My Norton internet Security 2002
(although its out of date) ask me if I should permit acces to the internet
for this :-C:/WINDOWS/system32/svchost.exe is this safe to permit ?

Also for some reason I am now reading Newsgroups in smaller text than usual
and I`ve noticed this in Windows Security Centre too ? Whats that all about ?

Please help me...

Hi will,

I read the article but I couldn't really tell or understand if this means
that it is safe or not ???

I`ll let it access net - it didn't say it was unsafe ?
