    Hey Guys,

    I just installed Tiny Personal Firewall on my computer and 2 windows keep popping up and I don't know what they mean. I'm afraid that if I click "Yes" my computer might blow up.

    Really!!!!!! :bag:

    Thank in advance for your help.

    That's wack... have you run a virus scan lately? That first one looks especially suspicious.

    I don't know much about Tiny Firewall, but the first first window looks like the application is trying to complete an installation. The symbols lead me to believe that the application was written in something other than english. Usually symbols like that are used when a font/language isn't installed on your computer.

    The second one looks like the application is trying to find a file, dll, etc. when it is firing up. My guess is that because the installation isn't complete the application can't find the file.

    You can always e-mail the developer, and see what the issue could be. Or if you think it's suspicious, just uninstall the application and install a different firewall.

    Well, the the 1st window seemed to pop up as soon as I was hitting enter on ebay and the accepted the "replacement application". Then an "outgoing connection alert" popped up with the same weird "word" and I blocked it and so far, so good.

    I have AVG and Norton and I run virus checks at least 3x a week with both of them.

    Do you have Internet Connection Sharing running on your PC? If so, that is a problem with TPF.

    Not that I am the only guy capable of helping you out around here, but let me know when you are ready to set it up again.
