Slow Alerts

When an alert popup appears, I click the remember box and the allow button. The popup then sits there for sometimes several minutes before disappearing. Sometimes the application allowed times out waiting for a connection.

I don’t think it has always been so slow and cannot figure out a solution other then remove and use another firewall.

Firewall component setting is in learning mode.


open taskmgr and sort apps by cpu usage, tell if some is perm 100%.


Yes, or at least part of the time. swdsvc.exe was near 100%. Spyware Doctor! Is this a known issue?


none can say, what does your log of that doctor say it controls so much?
