I am unsure what to allow and what not too, I get alerts everytime I connect to the internet telling me that, "Generic Host Process for Win 32" has changed, if I allow the change all seems ok, if I block the change then I get a "page cannot be displayed" page. Ok simple enough.....but it shows .dll files being changed, like 6 of them, everytime I connect??? Confusing. Also while here a little while ago posted a reply to my other topic I got an "Attack Detection" alert on my Firewall and this is what it showed: 12:29:14 PM My address 127.0.0.1
And these are the "Suspicious Packets" that were logged at the same time:
12:29:05 PM 66.151.125.6 UDP (33435)
12:29:12 PM 66.151.125.14 UDP (33437)

12:29:19 PM 66.151.125.30 UDP (33441)

Then while posting about the Attack detection Alert I lost my internet connection for about 2.5 hours, called my ISP and they said it showed me as still connected and did so for 2.5 hours, was still on phone with them when I was finaly able to reconnect. Came directly back here and made this post. Any advice?

I just cleared up an infection with the help of people on the HijackThis forum who suggested I get I firewall for my computer. One of the recommendations was for Outpost Firewall. So I downloaded the program and all was good, but then I restarted my computer (windows XP pro service pack 3) and it wouldn't go past the "Loading your personal settings". I then restarted into safe mode and uninstalled the firewall and it started up fine afterwards. I liked outpost firewall so is there anyway to stop this from happening? Or should I just try a different program?
Thanks

A:Outpost firewall issues

Outpost is wonderful, solid, product. What happened to you shouldn't have. It works with XP-SP3 very well.
Question - did you uninstall any old traces of previous firewall or similar products first or did you really not have a firewall?
Did the Outpost installation go well with no errors and then the required first reboot failed?
Or did the lockup happen later?
Perhaps the trojan cleanup didn't cleanup everything, as it sounds like some sort of a driver conflict.

Is the free version of Outpost Firewall any good? How about Sygate Personal Firewall 5.6.2808?

Outpost free firewall is one of the best out there.
So is Sygate, but Sygate is no longer supported and has few issues outstanding.

Will this meaningless answer help you? I doubt it. What do you want the firewall to do? Read the features on their site, google the meaning of the words, and see if it matches your requirements.

I have a new computer with Vista Home Premium and I moved some of the Public Folders (Public Documents, Music, Pictures) from C to D, as instructed by Microsoft at this link When you try to move a public folder in Windows Vista, the Move button may be missing

I want to be able to share these folders from their new location with the other computers in my home network, so I turned on the Public Folder sharing in the Network and Sharing Center.

However, in the Network and Sharing Center the only public folders recognized are the ones still at the original location - C:\Users\Public\Favorites and C:\ ...\Public Desktop (hidden files) and ...\Recorded TV.

I have spent a few hours searching for the answer to this on the internet. In this version of Vista Home Premium, there is NOTthe option to change the letter of the directory in the registry by changing the key called public as suggested by the How To Geek at this link Move the Public Folder in Windows Vista :: the How-To Geek

You should see a key called Public. Double-click it to open it and change it to D:\Public, or whatever location you want to move the public folder to."Note - Vista Home Premium does NOT have a Public key.

Does anyone else have any other ideas?

Thanks so much in advance.

Hi,

My subscription ran out to ZoneAlarm Pro and I started getting an annoying nag pop-up. The new versions of ZoneAlarm no longer support win 9x, so I uninstalled ZoneAlarm Pro and installed ZoneAlarm free version 3.7. Trouble is that it will not remember permissions or settings which is also annoying. Looking around, Agnitum Outpost Pro firewall is the only firewall I can find that still supports Win9x. I downloaded the trial version, but I have not installed it yet.

Before I uninstall ZoneAlarm 3.7 and install Agnitum Outpost Pro, I am asking for recommendations, warnings, Pro's and Con's, concerning Outpost.

Is it good?
Is it reliable and trouble free?
Does it use a lot of resources?
Does it install easily?
Does it play well with other security apps?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Hello Friends,
For post 4 years I have been using Outpost Firewall without any issues.
However, due to recent news that "Agnitum has terminated sales of the Outpost product line", I'm in dilemma as to which firewall to use.

Please note that I was using only Firewall module in Outpost Firewall and really liked the feature wherein I could block URLs (advertisements, etc).

I would greatly appreciate your tested suggestions on a Firewall, having ability to block URLs.

I'm currently using Avira Pro Antivirus & MBAM Real-time.

Hello!
I use Windows vista 64 bit, sp1.
also i have two hard disk drives (2* 500gb DDR2 Ram)

so I decided to try it, installed it and it worked in the beginning.
But I didnt know how to configure it correctly and didnt want to try it out.. also I had some problems, for example ICQ couldnt start up after the installation of OFP. there was some error like "Modul 1 missing".. it looked like the firewall blocked off many things i wanted to do. i also couldnt deinstall some programs any more and stuff like that.
then i decided to uninstall the firewall.
so I used the windows vista uninstall service. i saw the firewall and it had 52 GB of space.. it confused me a bit but I didnt think twice and just uninstalled it. after that, nearly all items in my C drive where deleted. the D drive (which is on my other hard disk drive) still works, and everything I had installed from D drive too (programs etc).
but everything that was installed from C didnt work, it always said "Cant finde the data" and stuff like that.
so i decided to reset my system to the point before I even installed the firewall.. now i can see the data on C drive again, but still most programs dont really work. for example if i start winamp you cant see most of the... Read more

Hey Gang,

I like to play Mechwarrior 4 Vengeance online. This is the first time I've played it with Outpost Firewall ver. 2.6 and Earthlink DSL.

When I disable the firewall everything works fine. However when I enable firewall I can't connect to the game. This only seems a problem with Mechwarrior, not with other games.

I have configured Outpost firewall to always allow the application. Mech is also listed as a TRUSTED appliation. However no joy. Outpost still blocks Mech.

Is it okay to play Mechwarrior with the firewall disabled? Or is there a way to configure Outpost so I can play Mechwarrior?

Hi All

I tried to install Outpost's free firewall today. Unfortunately all my adapters -- broadcom 440x 10/100 and intel proset/wireless 2200bg don't work. i uninstalled outpost. under device manager it left a yellow exclamation with a number of agnitum adapters including the ones above. i tried clean.exe in safe mode to remove the remaining adapters.

So here is the bigger problem, when i try to uninstall and the reinstall either of the adapters from the driver executables, it starts, does a partial install, but then gives me an error indicating that a file (necessary to complete the install) cannot be found.

3) And are you installing the latest drivers fourn on the Dell support website?

Dear everyone

Yesterday I installed Agnitum OutPost Firewall 3.51 for my Home PC. Straight after I installed it there's nothing wrong happened. However After I turned off and then reboot my PC everything started up normally except when i tried to connect to the internet the connection is blocked. Actually I had this problem before then I thought i might've set something for my first installation of the firewall, I figured after I uninstall and reinstall it then choose the default configuration everything would be fine but it's not.

Right now, i'm using the Window Firewall instead since the Outpost doesn't allow me to use my internet connection.

What should I do?

If i want to use the Internet I have to exit the Outpost and restart it again but that's not what it supposed to be like, right?

I have to admit I don't find this firewall easy to use at all, any suggesstion for other firewall with simple interface?

I have two network cards in my PC. One of them connects to the internet while the other connects to my home network.

The issue is enabling public folders for the home network in "Network and Sharing Center" enables public folders for the public network also. In other words Windows grants permission to people on the internet to access my c:\users\Public folder.

Disabling public folders under public network settings disables public folders for the home network also, preventing people on my local area network from accessing my PC.

Refer this screenshot if you don't get my problem: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/6878074832/

In other words Windows grants permission to people on the internet to access my c:\users\Public folder.

A:Cannot turn off "Public Folder Sharing" for public network

I think it's because you set up a Public Network as your first interface. Because of this it may not be possible to turn off the Public file sharing option.

You don't need to use both interfaces to share the wireless connection with your wife. You can do that with a single interface by just setting up a Home Network on one of the interfaces then sharing out from that interface using software to make it easier like Connectify.

Hello Windows8use, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Double check to see if they may still be in the Recycle Bin to restore.

If not, then see if you may be able to do a system restore using a restore point dated before you deleted these folders to hopefully fix this.

Why does it say "Connected" next to "Public Networks" in my Windows Firewall page when in fact my computer does not show it is connected to any network at all? Why is Windows Firewall telling me I am connected but all the other relevant notifications in my computer say that I am not connected?

Am I missing something here?

Even when I disable all my network connections and turn off Windows Firewall, the Windows Firewall page still says I am "Connected".

Any ideas?

(This is on a brand new computer -- just a few days old -- with Windows 7, 64-bit.)

A:why does Windows Firewall say Public Networks Connected?

I don't know why Windows does that, but it is the default behavior. It seems like the default profile is "public" when there is no active connection - probably another layer of protection by default. AFAIK it doesn't hurt anything. I've never run into any issues on the computers that I run without any network connections.

While trying to exchange IP addresses to play an online game, I went to IPChicken.com, but that IP didn't work (that is, the game didnt recognize that IP as my server on the other player's end). In the game, it gives a completely different address, but it looks suspiciously like what I believe "local" IP addresses are. It is something like 168.199.1.101, and isn't that just referring to my postion on my LAN? So how do I get the correct IP address? Could my ZoneAlarm or router be messing me up? Im using XP Home.

I remember with Vista, this folder had multiple entries and they were not mine(probably came with new laptop, like bloat ware?). I was clueless then (with Vista)what that folder was about...and I'm still in the dark(with W7) .

I just discovered today, with W7, this folder is completely empty. (Why?).

I don't remember if I shared it(with Vista), but now I realize I have options...to share or not. I feel silly sharing an empty folder. So I opted to turn sharing OFF . Is being selfish(not sharing) disadvantageous to my system?

A:What's The Public Folder?...and what to do with it?

Hello Pappi,

The "Public" folders, are basically folders that the public (all users) have full access to by default. They basically set to be shared by "Everyone" making it easier to share files between users on the local PC and network easy to do by simply putting a file in one of the Public folders.

Empty Public folders do not take up any space. They are not a security risk since they only have access to what you place in the Public folders.

It's just a personal choice if you want to have Public folder sharing turned on or off.

Here's some more details below on all this if you like.

Hi
we have put in place corporate wifi and we have been experiencing a problem where the laptop would not obtain a DHCP address when trying to connect to corporate wi-fi

The problems appears to be windows firewall blocking the inbound DHCP request as the defined network at that point is either public or private. If we then also plugged the network cable in the network would change to domain and would then change the firewall
policy from standard to domain and in doing so allow the DHCP to work and the client would get an IP.

we have a centralized DHCP server and we use relay agents on the routers at sites to help issue the DHCP addresses

has anyone come across this before and if so what Inbound exception did you put in. I was planning on using GPO to push the exception out and set this on the standard firewall policy.

This is what i was thinking of adding into the standard firewall policy.

Hi,

I'm on a home network. Its all been configured. My firewall has been configured. Just wondering how to put files in the public folder. I understand you can just copy files in there but i dont want to because it'll take up space. Is there a way to make individual files or folders share themselves into the public folders without duplicating themselves from the original to save space? Because i dont want two from the same file, ie one in the public folder and the other in the original folder.

Also, i use vista and my other network computers are on xp. I noticed on one of them, i can give it files and but i cannot take files from it onto my computer. I understand it must be a sharing setting on that computer but im not sure where to go to fix it since its xp and im a vista person now.

I wanted to move the Public Folder from C:\Users to D:\, so I simply copied the folder, delete the original, and created a symbolic link (with -mklink-). A little knowledge was a dangerous thing - apparently I should have used -robocopy- to ensure the copy of Public had the correct characteristics. So, is there a way to fix D:\Public so that it has the correct permissions of a "Public" folder? If not, is there a way to recreate the original C:\Users\Public? I am not concerned about any data in this folder, as there was (so far) none there.

Apologies if this has been addressed here before, I tried searching the forums but with no luck. Thanks.

I just set up my Public folders to share files across my home network and the Public folder already has lots of files in it that I didn't put there.

For example, Public Desktop has shortcuts to Adobe Reader etc. Another folder called Games has the full installations of some of my games. I don't want these shared!

When I deleted some of them, they were also deleted from my real desktop. Not good.
When I clicked on Share and tried to Unshare one of these folders, it wouldn't let me.

Three questions:
1) How did they get there in the first place?
2) How can I keep this from happening in the future?
3) Since deleting some of them also deleted them from my computer, how can I remove these files from the Public sharing area without messing up the installation on my computer?

Hello,
I've recently been having some trouble with installing and running a few programs. (skype and rosetta stone are two that it happens). When I open them my entire computer just freezes. I have a feeling that it might have something to do with my Public Folders. A little while back I was trying to fix them because they appeared as just standard yellow folders, instead of the folders with the image on it. However, I could not get all of them to change to the imaged folder. My public desktop stayed as a normal yellow folder.

I did this fixing by following a website:
http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/172301-public-folder-icons-restore-default-icon.html

The website basically had me do shell commands, and replace the desktop.ini file for each folder...It just so happens that this website was designed for windows vista, not windows 7, so I think that I messed something up. Cause ever since then my programs have not been running correctly.

I used to have messed up file sharing settings because the printer wouldnt work but they were alright because whoever looked into my Computer in the network would only find a Public folder. (w/o passwords)

Now, i reinstalled windows, and whenever somenoe looks into my computer under the network, they have to enter a password and once they do, they can access not only the public folder, but all my documents under my folder. (Users/MyStuff)

the sharing folder is Users so people can see everything inside Users if they have my password.

What i want to do is let them only access the Public folder WITHOUT my password.

That way, if i have something that needs to be transferred, i'll just drop it on in the public folder, and someone can take it.

I am confused in terms of how to reach these settings and i would appreciate it if anyone could offer a solution.

There are separate Advanced file sharing settings which refer specifically to the Public folders so that needs to be enabled.

Besides that you should make sure that you have enabled sharing for the Public folders by going to C:>Users>Public folder, and enable sharing through the Sharing tab. You should also make sure that the C:>Users folder is shared out through the Sharing tab as well.

These are system files and are needed for sharing purpose between user accounts. You should NOT delete them. Doing so may also cause other unknown issues to arrise.

As a workaround, you could just hide the folders them if you do not wish to see them. They do not take up enough space to worry about.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi,

I have a user who wants a shortcut to a pulbic folder on the desktop. I have tried several methods and nothing seems to work. I am starting to wonder if this is even possible. The last thing I tried was creating a shortcut in outlook and dragging it to the desktop but it just would not copy. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I deleted the \users\public\"Public Documents" folder.

How do I restore this folder?

Simply creating a folder with that name does not create a folder with the correct characteristics.

Hi,

I deleted my public folders a few days ago and now I can't do any updates!

Windows Live stopped working as did Evernote.

I don't want the Public folders and was hoping there is a way to solve this.

BTW, I did all the suggestions suggested on the thread for resetting win updates and ran the Fix It. The updates are also listing as for 32 bit?

Win 7 64 bit Home Premium.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Dapa,

You could try doing a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before this issue started to hopefully fix it.

My Public Picture Folder is hidden as well as my photos. I am the PC administrator. There are two programs that are accessing the folder. The Cozi screensaver is showing my photos that I cannot locate. Also, Sony PlayMemories shows every folder in the Public picture folder, but each photo is locked, and when I try to export, it says I do not have access privileges.
 
What in the world is going on here? I can see my pictures and the directory via these two programs, but Windows Explorer does not show the folder or the pictures.

Stop the Cozi screensaver and put up a different one. One that doesn't show pix. Reboot the PC. See what happens now. Let us know.

I have a problem in a lab on Dell Optiplex 745 computers. In this lab, there are 29 computers originally running Vista SP2. I cloned them with a configured Vista image made for this lab. After I cloned these computers, I discovered on 15 of them, the Public Desktop folder is missing. All of the other Public folders (Documents, Music, Pictures, etc...) are visible. This is happening to all profiles (Admin, teacher, student) accounts. It doesn't matter who is logged on to any of the 15 computers. This is NOT a single profile corruption issue.

I have Show Hidden files, folder, drives, and I unchecked the 3 Hide..... boxes. It doesn't restore the Public Desktop Folder.

I have tried use a REG file to merge the two together. Nothing.


I have tried to search (shellublic/desktop) for Public Desktop folder. Nothing.

I have restarted the computer.

I have tried to use a RESTORE POINT but it only goes back to 2 weeks ago.
I have tried to use the REPAIR option but that didn't solve my problem.
I am performing ALL of these tests under an admin account. Since there is student files on these 15 computers, I cannot re-clone these computers nor can I perform a repair on these computers. I don't want to risk the loss of data. There has to be way to restore the Public Desktop folder WITHOUT cloning or repairing these computers.

I have tried to logon to one of these computers as LOCAL ADMIN to fix the problem. Also, I have tried Administrator account to ... Read more

hi,

there are numerous ntuser files (ntuser.dat and ntuser.dat.log1 etc) in my public folder...

are they supposed to be there?

and are they supposed to be visable to other computers on the network?

they are protected system files and are set to hidden so are not visable to this or the other vista pc on the network, however their is a user with a macbook on the network and they are visable to him when he access my public folder...is this normal and are there security/privacy issues with this?

cheers

A:ntuser.dat files in public folder

Welcome
Those are registry files and should be well hidden from everyone.

I do not know if you could compress the Public folder but since I do not use it either, they are virtually empty.

I would gain nothing by compressing them.

Hi, this is may seem to be a bit of a dumb question but I'm having trouble figuring it out on my own. My wife and I have our own respective PCs both with Vista in our home. My PC has three Hard Disks in it. I have our computers networked together through a router. Now I have all of our photographs on one of the hard drives other than my primary OS hard drive to save space. Now I've recently tried to make a shortcut to the photographs on my secondary hard drive, in the public folder and my wife's computer doesn't "see" any shortcuts. Is there any way to run a shortcut to a different drive in the public folder or do I have to physically copy all the photos into the public folder on my primary hard drive in order to make them available via the network? Also does anything you put in your public folder make it so that it's physically taking up space twice on your HDD? Thanks for any help in advance! I appretiate it!

I have just looked in my computer and noticed that somehow that I have acquired Public Folders and pictures.

I have three computers and noticed that I have access to them.

Whilst I do not mind that they have access to my computer - when I have a picture that I wish to have saved to my computer - I just wish the default just to be to my location.

I also do not wish to loose any pictures.

It says that it has three locations - I do not even know which computer it is on and how to navigate to it, so I just wish to decide myself where to put it.

Can anyone please assist?

A:How to change the public folder options

Hello Melissa,

The "My...." folders with shortcut arrows on them are not real folders, but only junction points for backwards compatibility for older programs that point to you real "My..." user folders. I would recommend to set you hidden files to no longer show so that you do not mistakenly use or do something to them.Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide
In your screenshots above, you are only viewing files from the "Music" library on only your computer. Each default library includes your "My..." user folder and "Public" folder for it. For example, the "Music" library will have your "C:\Users\(user-name)\My Music" and "C:\Users\Public\Public Music" folders by default. If you like, read the tutorials below for more on this to help.Library - Include a Folder

do u think it is safe to delete the entire 'public folder', if i had already safely disabled Win7's library system from my os? on the navigation pane i no longer have favorites & library.

just assume i will never want to touch library, will never have another user account attach to this pc, and never have this pc join any network.

thanx in advance
 

A:cannot open public folder on network

On the XP machine with the shared folder do this.

Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer

If you see this message the following should be done on the computer containing the shared files:

Download the following and install it

Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=4544

after installation is complete, click on: Start, All Programs, Windows Resource Kit Tools, Command Shell

Then enter the following commands. (Attention: they are case sensitive.)

net user guest /active:yes
ntrights +r SeNetworkLogonRight -u Guest
ntrights -r SeDenyNetworkLogonRight -u Guest

The first command enables network access for Guest, the two subsequent ones change two different policies to allow network access for Guest.
