    All of a sudden tonight I get an alert from comodo someone was trying to
    connect to my machine via port 25. Checked the IP and it's from china so
    nope charlee chan, no come in go away.

    If you need an excellent and free firewall, check out comodo.
    It let's you know what's going on in your machine most firewalls don't even
    bother with.

    I don't think it's racist either way. Geeze, you can't even call Mexicans,
    Mexicans anymore. Now they want to be called "Latinos".

    And I don't think the abbreviation for "Viet Cong", Victor Charlie, aka (V.C.
    - in NATO phonetic code) is racist either.

    How come the mere mention of a race, is now racist? Goddamn hippies.

    You are running a mail server on your PC? That's not a good idea.

    If you need an excellent and free firewall, check out comodo.

    I am looking at Comodo for 64bit Windows 7. The free version comes as a
    firewall / antivirus combination. Is it possible to install on the
    firewall portion of the software? I am using AVG for antivirus and do
    not wish to change.

    Never mind. My question was answered on the download page. I just did
    not read far enough.

    I wouldn't either. A lot of people still have sore memories about that. John
    Mc Cain still calls them "Gooks".

    so what's wrong with using both? One might catch something the other
    missed.

    I hope that was directed towards RtS and not the OP.

    I used Comodo and liked it, but had to get rid of it. The anti virus
    wouldn't accept the fact I want "bad" files to stay where the are, and
    quit reminding me of them, come to find out Avast, AVG, and antivir
    all do the same thing. Every time I open explorer I have to tell those
    programs to ignore the Keygens they had found - I've all but disabled
    Heuristics, yet it continues.

    NOD32 accepts the fact and ignores them after asking one time. Unless
    I'm trying to download a virus. While NOD32 tries to stop it, a virus
    is usually just a few K and they finally get through, I just have to
    keep clicking ignore (but it also means it passed the test).

    Plus I play games, MW2 at the moment, Comodo does let you control what
    runs, but it goes too far, so I'm always breaking out of a game to
    answer a Comodo request, and you don't want to give it the "run all
    the time" ability.

    It was nice, but not for me; went back to Zone Alarm 5.5.0094

    ---------

    Speaking of files and heuristics

    Anybody running Bit Che? Real nice companion to Utorrent.
    From the directory:

    Left WinKey+R, will open the Run command <type in>
    %userprofile%\Application Data\Convivea\Bit_Che\scripts\
    <enter>

    Run an online virus test on file - UPDATE.EXE - from that directory.

    AVG9.0 (registered) won't leave it alone, two or three other programs,
    one being Kaspersky also consider it a "Trojan horse" (Generic##)

    Checking it out, I figure heuristics catches this function:
    000087AE: >
    <security>
    <requestedPrivileges>
    <requestedExecutionLevel level

    (it's a script updater)

    Plus it has a bad checksum, so I'm not that sure it runs when
    required.
