    I have Norton anti-virus and firewall installed. ONLY - when I am logged in to RHP I keep getting the following 'warning' message from Norton

    A remote system is attempting to access microsoft generic host
    process for win32 Services on your computer

    program C:Windows\system32\sychost.exe
    protocol is TCP (inbound)

    I only get these when logged on to RHP --explanations and advice would be very much appreciated.

    Regards

    sVchost.exe or sYChost.exe?

    If it is svchost, then this should be running. Anything else, I don’t know.

    As for why Norton should object to RHP, I have no idea. We do compress our pages, so that maybe something to do with it....

    [I run Norton myself, and I have never seen anything like this though.]

    I would run some anti-spyware apps in case you have installed something unwittingly in the past, which I guess could be causing this with Norton running.

    Hi Russ

    Thanks for the reply.

    It's sychost.exe - but the letters are not capitalised as per your message - they are all lower case.

    I run the Norton check every 3/4 days to (try and) ensure my PC is virus free.

    Norton doesn't prevent any access to RHP - I was curious to see if anyone knew what the message meant and what Win 32 is.

    Regards
