When I start aMSN (MSN Clone / aMSN’s Homepage) the firewall detects an application called “wish.exe”, which who wants to access the internet. This application is a critical part of aMSN and is found safe by me, which I then grant access, but then my Notebook just locks up. I clicked “Allow”, but then nothing happens. This happens repeatadly and it does not matter if I check “Remember this setting” or not, after I press “Allow” I get a constant 100% CPU usage and I had to shutdown my Notebook using the power button.
My specifications are as follow:
Windows XP with SP2, all the latest updates installed.
Toschiba A100-250 (Which I did upgrade to 1,5GB of Ram) Specs
I want to thank you for your answer, I did have to make a new Network Rule in the Network Monitor, (which was a lot more difficult then in ZA) cause it seemed that “Wish.exe” also needed an inbound connection… which is quite logical now that I think of it
Maybe the issue was that I run “amsn.exe” which in turn ran “wish.exe”? No idea to be honest, just guessing here, but none the less, the issue is resolved now.
