    This program is part of the Microsoft Windows operating system and is critical for the Windows firewall. This should be left running, as it is part of your system and will be found on all the latest computers. Alg.exe stands for application layer gateway.

    Found in C:\WINDOWS\system32
    All other locations are backups, or original source distribution folder

    Verdict: Required - Leave alone
