    The tool does not need any internet access at all on my machine, checked also with Comodo Firewall. You may have some other virus/spyware on your system.

    I seriously doubt andyp would make a shady program that requires internet access. I have run both his tools and neither get flagged by my firewall.

    I will confirm, andyp tool does not access network. I take this sort of thing seriously.

    I didn't think so either that's why I allowed it to access the network and used it.

    I would just like to know why this is being flagged by my firewall.

    @NoJuan999, Do the numbers 127.0.0.1 and 0.0.0.0 do mean anything to you? Or the term Local System perhaps? :D:D

    Sorry,
    It just freaked me out for a second.
    I just installed that Firewall to test it for a friend, it didn't get flagged with my FortKnox firewall that I was running.

    I just saw that, myself. I didn't look at the numbers and should have before posting. :)
    That's why I just posted a ScreenShot to show you that it was a false alarm.


    Feel free to delete this thread so it doesn't scare anyone.

    What firewall is that?

    What is fortknox firewall.

    For once you could start using a decent firewall.Windows 7 builtin firewall looks pretty nice. If you're on xp, try zone alarm, comodo, keiro not fortknox or federal reserve.:) What is that?:)

    127.0.0.1.:)) It tried to contact the local machine. :))

    There is certainly no network access code in there. Don't know how to do that! Either a false positive or something to do with the .NET framework.
