  1. dont know if im in the right forum for this :).

    I use tiny personal firewall and have 512k cable connection through ntl to the net . Whenver im not using the net , either using my computer for work or playing single player games i keep getting this same message from my firewall-

    "details-Someone from 65.57.163.73, port 32789 wants to send UDP datagram to port 1026 owned by 'Generic Host Process for Win32 Services' on your computer"

    "c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe"

    I get it about once every 30-60 minutes and always choose to deny it . I know i could set up a rule to automatically deny it , but i havent always got my firewall on . Anyone have any idea what this message is all about?? who/who's trying to send something to my computer??

    Thanks for the reply . I disabled the messenger several months ago after getting some advice from this forum , so i no longer get the pop ups . Now i just get this hit on my firewall . Thing is i turn my firewall off to play online games , so i am paranoid that somehing could happen then .

    It looks you you have been traced for illegally copied music by the RIAA/MPAA
    The IP-address you mention is:
    ByeByeAds NetBIOS Spammer:65.57.163.73
