My Firewall asked me to allow access on four occasions that I denied. Any ideas as to what the reason for those requests are? Malware? Viruses? Do I need to do anything?


Winword.exe; Taskhost.exe;


Can you read the attached Snipping picture by clicking on it?


Or Is there a better way?

  • I requires me to install Quicktime to view it which I don't want. smile2.png


    Thanks for your feedback. Actually I now found out it opens with Internet Explorer on my PC, probably not with Firefox don't know.

  • These are files of Windows (taskhost) and MS Word (winword). I guess you do have MS Word, right? There is no need to block them.

    Thanks for your reply. Yes I have MS Office with Word. I have heard of legitimate files being imitated but in a different location that could be bad. Good to know it's not the case here.
