I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I'm trying to install the newest version of sunbelt kerio firewall. I already uninstalled my old version (4.21 I think) and ran a few registry cleaners but when I run the installer for the newest version it says I already have a higher version installed and closes. What should I do?

Looking for help configuring Filter Rules and MD5 settings under "Administration > "Advanced" in Kerio 2.1. This stuff is way above my level of understanding. Any ideas on a standard configuration for the average novice user or items of major concern (critical settings). This firewall seems to be blocking some unauthorized connections, but I am worried that I am missing something. I am running the middle setting "Ask Me First" under Administration, and have set some rules for using programs like Outlook Express for example, but other than this... things get really fuzzy. Thanks for any suggestions.

I've been using Kerio's Personal firewall for a few months now, and after seeing joe2cool's link showing Steve Gibson updated his stealth checker, I went to see how I fared with Kerio. Well, after doing the full port scan, I found that I have only about 6 ports in stealth, and the rest closed.
Does anyone know how to set Kerio ports to stealth?

I think it's a port used by DHCP server which issues you the IP address.I would think you should allow Kerio to listen to it and acknowledge, but an expert needs to confirm.Are you having internet problems?This description of various windows ports does NOT include ME, so I don't know if it may have changedhttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/832017 Normally port 67 and 68 go together.

Hi Folks...One of the many friends whom I help keep their systems going is running Win 98. the latest release of Zone Alarm is not compatible. I also have an old Dell desktop running Win98SE. I don't use it much any more, but I like to keep it current.

The only alternate (free) firewall I've been able to find is Kerio. I have zero experience with Kerio and would like to hear some opinions about it. Any and all thoughts greatly appreciated. Also any other alternative firewall suggestions would be helpful.

This morning I started gettting a bunch of Kerio popup warnings which I do when the DNS numbers change. I changed them in my rule set and I still keep getting the one below. What does it mean?

A:Kerio Alert

I am always mystified by the warning pop-ups that Kerio (and presumably ANY firewall) shows from time to time. Usually if I don't understand them I tick the 'Create appropriate....' and click Deny. No problems so far.

hi all,

i want to limit the internet access in my office by using KERIO and by user id.

i managed to import users from my actice directoty, but when it comes to the traffic policy. i cannot to limit the access by users, only by IP.

i block all access to internet in my router, then i set the IE connection to the computer where i installed the KERIO.

is there something missing or wrong in my setting?

heres an example from the traffic policy that i set in my KERIO

testing [email protected] Any HTTP Permit
HTTP Proxy

testing is only the name
source: [email protected] means that he is allowed to access internet where ever he's using any workstation.

if i limit by IP in KERIO, all is fine but i want to limit it by users.

A:Kerio Firewall

I have been using the (free) Kerio Firewall for about three years without problem, other than when it flags up an incoming or outgoing message I usually cannot understand what the potential danger is, if any. I usually click 'No', and if it persists I click the box to make the rejection permanent.
I can't answer your first question, but as regards startup you should find the option, after having started it manually, by right-clicking the taskbar icon, choosing Administration, and find the option at the bottom of the Miscellaneous tab.

Help !!!! I have unwittingly loaded this terrible invasion of my privacy on my PC. Norton keeps finding it when scanning. I followed the instructions on how to remove, and I found the spyware.
Apparently I still have it somewhere on my PC, it is not where it originally was.

I also have some files in my temp internet files that will NOT delete under any circumstances, I have tried everything including Total Commander.
Spybot S&D does not find anything wrong, but I know I have a prob as my laptop, on dial up, can load some pages faster than my BB connection
Reg cleaner finds nothing wrond, or ad aware, so where can I go from here ?
The files that are in my temo internet folders are labelled with th etitles :
RAM - Lingerie - Shoes - Clothes etc etc so I know that these are some sort of spyware.

I am a bit of a novice when it comes to PC's even tho I have used them for years, and don't want to delete anything that I should not.



Reboot into safe mode and run the spybot, adaware programs again. You should also be able to delete those files in safe mode.

I recently got infected with some kind of virus that passed under my scanners. It redirected me on google links and such. I think it may have allowed in more viruses, because before I knew it, I had a few fake virus scanners including Windows Antivirus Pro. I thought I got rid of them, but I must not have, because now I can't run any kind of scans. Oddly enough, just about everything else works fine on my computer. Since then, I've looked around for solutions and have yet to find something that will scan properly.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I cannot believe the recent McAfee PFW 8.0 upgrade requires eight services and ten running files using approx 88MB memory per Task Manager! This is just unacceptable. I uninstalled all things McAfee but the FW ages ago and that is about to get the axe, too, I'm afraid. My subscription is not up until April but I am so disgusted I may just not wait til them to uninstall! Because I only want to select a FW with continued development (ruling out Sygate), I have narrowed the field to Sunbelt Kerio PFW and Comodo PFW, with a present leaning towards the SKPF. I have been readiing up on them for some time now on several forums & the latest releases of both appear to offer excellent protection & run pretty light on resources. They both appear to have a learning/basic mode with out-of-the-box ease of installation/setup. Comodo is currently free (but must register) and SBKF is currently $19.95/yr with a $10.00 renewal fee each year thereafter.Given what I have onboard realtime (see my signature), would users of these firewalls please offer their advice,suggestions, warnings as to how the two might perform (or conflict) on my system? Would you anticipate any problems/conflicts with what I have onboard?

A:Sunbelt Kerio Fw Or Comodo Fw?

I have a similar set up to you and I run Comodo. Your correct in that you have to register comodo but that is only foer the license key - I used a throw away gmail address for this.

System resoourse seem light and do not seem to be interupting day to day running.

Previously I was running Kerio but got fed up with the free version constantly reminding me to upgrade.

As I said Comodo does everything I want it to do and there is an official forum with custom rulesets.

Load it and give it a go.

ok, here's the story.
I upgraded to xp home edition about 3 wks ago. Things are pretty smooth with no glitches, almost. I am running an inexpensive computer with lots of hard drive space and 256k memory.
I installed the free version of kerio 2.1 personal firewall. I am very much the novice on what to allow and what to deny permission but that is a different story, I hope.
I called the co. that built my computer and they suggested that i uninstall kerio, then reinstall which I did. The reason was because each time I tried to open "status,administration", or anything, I got a box stating that Kerio was running on a remote computer(the box was checked) and the "status window" box was checked. Nothing happens when I try to change to the "local host" box and the Admin box.
When I boot up, I get two pop up boxes, one stating:
Ffvarlibinit:var_server_starterror 1(10048:bind()failed
and the other stating:
KFE initialization failed: invalid parameter
Now the crazy part about it is that Kerio is currently active and running. I called Kerio and they told me they do not support the free version. So, basically, I can't get into the firewall to make any changes or do anything to anything to this program. By the way, when I began to uninstall there were two Kerio's. One was the Kerio 2.1 and the other was just Kerio. On uninstallation of Kerio, it said I would have to restart in VGA to uninstall. I have no clue as to what that is or what to do. ... Read more

Windows XP Home SP2
Cute ftp 7
Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall 4 (paid)
I recently upgraded my Java to jre1.6.0 and removed all my "old" java versions.

Today I tried to upload my web site using Cute ftp. It uploaded fine but when viewed on the Internet I got an "Internal Server Error" #403 and/or #500

While researching this problem I came across several mentions of Java, as well as other possible explainations.

I just ran CCleaner and in the "Issues" section there is a long list of ActiveX/COM items that look like this;

Problem: ActiveX/COM Issue
Data: InProcServer32\C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0\bin\ssv.dll
Registry Key: HKCR\CLSID\{761497BB-D6F0-462C-B6EB-D4DAF1D92D43}

In my Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall 4 (paid) I have ActiveX checked so it can't run.
Is there a connection between not being able to see my web site and this list of ActiveX issues, or the new Java? My web site has a few forms on it that use Java.

What is the best way to configure Cute ftp in the Kerio firewall so it is secure, but still works?

Am I even asking the right questions? I hope you can see something that might provide a clue.

Thanks for looking

It was recommended I install Kerio's firewall. Not for nothing, but compared to zonealarm, this thing is a piece of crap.

ZONEALRM actually tells you WHAT wants thru. This piece of garbage... you have to be a 20 year experienced network engineer to (MAYBE) know what is asking permission to my box.

I would like to know what is your opinion about Kerio Personal Firewall.

I would like to install it but I need some advice.

I have Windows XP firewall already. Symantec anti-virus and AdAware 6.0 plus Spybot Search and Destroy.

Some say that Windows' firewall is not enough, that I need another one.

Need your opinion please.

Thanks in advance for your replies.


A:What do you think about Kerio Personal Firewall?

I use Kerio Personal Firewall instead of the Windows XP firewall at home. I think it's a lot better because of the ability to see what programs are executing and which ports are being used to listen on your computer.

I've also heard that the XP firewall may get disabled by certain types of viruses, leaving you unprotected.

I think you should try it out; it's free for home users anyways. If you don't like it you can always uninstall it and try ZoneAlarm or some other type of firewall.

First off, I want to apologize because this list is quite extensive and has already given me a ton of headaches.

1) I had a laptop, which decided to call it quits on me (the motherboard). Too expensive to replace, and I needed internet access for a lot of things. A friend gave me his old (ancient) desktop, which I have used for the past couple weeks.

Until two days ago, when the computer wouldn't boot up (not sure if this is correct usage of computer terminology). I'd press power, it'd play the windows ME chime, tell me to login, and then after I sign in, nothing would happen. I'd see the background and thats it. I hit Ctrl+alt+del and there wasn't even a program list.


So first off, does anyone know how I can resolve that? What the problem might be? If there is even hope for it?
2) The laptop hard drive is undamaged. Is there anyway I can pull that out, and if I get the desktop running, pull data off of it? I have a lot of information I want off there but am unsure how to do that. Or even run the hard drive off of the desktop? Especially since the laptop had windows xp, and me just blows.

3) This is the least significant, and only a minor nuisance, but I thought I'd list it. I have cable internet, and I borrowed a friends laptop so that I could find information on the internet and also check to see if I could get my desktop running again. The machine refuses to run the LAN, I disable it, enable, repair, and it will connect, tel... Read more

Click to expand...

If the drive is undamaged you should be able to put it in another rig, as a Slave, and get your info. But not in a WinME machine (assuming the laptop was NTFS formatted). Have someone with an XP rig do it and burn to CD-Rs.

I recently found through Malwarebytes scan that I had an infection called pup.bundle.installer.oi. I quarantined the virus and then went looking on the internet as to how to remove this problem. I have used the steps indicated in the wikisecurity-info website and logged in in safe mode networking then checked in the task manager for processes (there were none) and went ahead and searched for files as indicated on the wiki website - again there were none. I was then instructed to run registry files and delete from there but again didn't find anything.

Everything I have read about this virus leads me to be hesitant to believe that it has been removed. My laptop is slow to respond, however I haven't encountered any other issues.

Can you please advise what I can do to ensure that the virus has been removed.

My interest in Office is somewhat subdued, because I do not use these kind of apps often, and can get by with Open Office...or whatever it is called now. But, I have been thinking about trying a different Security Suite, because of some quirks of Outpost Security Suite that I would like to eliminate.

However, I know very little about CA, other than recognizing the name. Rather than simply saying yes, it's good, or no, it's bad, I'm hoping that someone has used both security suites and can compare them?

The only reason that I'm considering this is because it looks like an affordable option.

I am a network administrator. I have a new machine with Norton pre-installed, which I uninstalled using the Norton removal tool. I was unable to get CA to work with my machine and called for tech support. After three hours, the technician told me it was fixed but it was not. I was able to browse the internet, but unable to update the CA product. I called back for more tech support and was told that there would be a fee of $169 to "fix" it. Not in this lifetime. This is a brand new computer, with brand new software, operated by a knowledgeable "end-user" and the method of selling service is unconscionable. I have been using CA products for my professional environment and have been extremely pleased. This new method of "delivery" is absurd and not in the great tradition of the company.

Try it with Windows 7. Maybe you'll have better luck. If your experience is similar to mine, I'd like to hear about it.

I came across a bundle of drivers specifically designed for W7 x64, most of which I have no interest in, but 1 or possibly 2 appear to be higher updates than I found elsewhere, particularly the nForce 4 chipset drivers.

I have spent a majority of the day downloading these, because I only found them on servers that attempt to nag you to pay them to download their files, in this case Hotfiles and a variety of other problems. They had the drivers split into 6 rar files, of which the last was slightly smaller than the rest and it downloaded at a much, much higher speed than the ones preceeding it.

Once downloaded, I used PowerArchiver to do a multi-extraction of them, but 3 times it popped warning windows of CRC errors, all of which appeared to involve only the 6th rar, so I downloaded it again, but PowerArchiver popped the same CRC warnings again. I decided to let it proceed anyway, and it produced an ISO, but since I only want the 1 driver in particular, I extracted the ISO also.

Scanning through the files and folders that was produced, I found nothing that specifically appeared to be the nForce 4 driver, so I clicked on the setup.exe, and the wizard that it produced was totally egnimatic to me. I'm not certain, but I think that it wanted to install everything in the download, because I saw no way to pick and choose. The check boxes in the top right pane will not permit to to selece or deselect any of them. Since I don't know what would happen if I experimented ... Read more

A:W7 x64 Driver Bundle

If it were mine, I would make a system image, in case the solution back fires.

First I would try cc cleaner, to clean up that junk on the hard drive

if that does not work. I would do a system restore which would definately do the trick. System restore will not affect any of your personal documents, pics etc. Think about it, and then decide. Good luck Richard
