Do my allowed programs in Firewall look okay?

I want to make sure I'm not blocking anything that could slow my internet or computer performance down.



If I should add or remove a program from my allowed programs, let me know please!

You have allowed Remote Assistance. Do you have people you know, work on you computer, remotely?

No. It was allowed when I got the computer. Should I uncheck that?
