When I unchecked scan all ports these pop up in Kaspersky..
Don't see a button to attach the pic...
The application rules don't automatically mean open ports. I'd be more concerned if a bunch of packet rules were allowed than I would application rules.
The application rules merely mean that the programs have the right to access the internet without being interrupted by the firewall. It doesn't mean it'll let just anything through. With Kaspersky's System Watcher module running at all times, I doubt anything's going to get past it.
For packet rules, there's not much to worry about there, because ALL packets are ALWAYS scanned by Kaspersky's firewall, as far as I know.
Having Kaspersky for two years prior to last year and this year, I remember that application rules for the firewall help keep the internet connection working at a quick speed, by not aggressively scanning every program's network activity. When an application/program is trusted, the network doesn't need scanned as aggressively.
You're smart on getting Kaspersky software, if you want protection. I'm very sure it'll be fine from here for the current computer. If any other issues popup, let me know.
Cool. Thanks for yor help! Saved my ***!
I was trying to get a snap shot of my net work monitor for you but still need to fix my PC. Any ideas on shut down time and also I'm ready with the laptop if you have time.
Okay, go with preliminary scans on that machine when you can.
Is the shutdown time a problem? How long does it take? Does it hang?
Yes it hangs. It takes anywhere from 5-10 minutes to shut down if I get lucky. One more pic and question about open ports...Ill scan the laptop in just a bit. Thanks Again.
Those do look like legitimate open ports.
Download the attached zip file, extract it to get the Registry (REG) file and run it please. Merge it to the Registry and reboot your computer.
Let me know how it goes. You have to reboot twice. The first time, it will probably hang. The second time should reveal the problem is fixed, if it is quicker to shutdown and even boot up.
Sometimes, devices that need a driver update may hang Windows at shutdown or boot up.
If this doesn't work (the REG file), reboot to Safe Mode with Networking, wait for a little while, then shutdown. Problem the same?
If so, access the performance information, by click Start > type View Performance Details - or Performance Info
We need the info from View Performance Information. It'll state what problems are happening, and how to resolve them.
This going alright?
Sorry I l had to leave town again for a few days. I'll work these steps tonight or first thing tomorrow. Another thing I'm having an issue with Adobe Reader disappearing on me. I have to print temp. license plates off TX DOTs website and Ive uninstalled an installed Reader 10 times and it works every once and awhile and others its completely gone..? If I download to my normal spot, the Desktop, I get an error saying I don't have permission to access it..
That's fine. Try the scan out. I'll be back tomorrow.
How did it go?
What are you working on now for this computer?
