Thanks,
I already found and used the removal tool. Shut down pc and router and restarted. Found this at the ZA forums. This is still my favorite forum. Thanks again,
John

I've never cared for software firewalls. They're good to have if your internet pipe is directly to your machine but if you're behind a router (which you really ought to be) they are pretty useless.

But how do you prevent things from your machine calling out?

I would prefer to be the one to decide if a program gets to phone home.

Holy crap that was a noisy sound! Nearly gave me a heartattack!

Apart from that it seems promising, I'll test it out thanks

Well, there is a partial reason for not preventing ping... Mostly it is there to determine if a server is reachable before trying to establish a connection.. You could just simply block all ICMP based traffic.

I know that ESET's Smart Security had a flag to block ICMP based attacks which blocked my Cyberkit's Traceroute functionality until I disabled it so I could use the program properly.
