I just got SP3 up and running on my old drive. File DL of SP3 wouldn’t take even in the safe mode (M$ Tech suggestion), but the SP3 ISO worked like a charm, for some reason. … Anyway, I’ve never seen these before so are these 2 supposed to trying to connect out thru DNS 53. 1) GDIEXT Client DLL 2) M$ Enhanced Cryptographic Provider and is this supposed to be accessing the loopback –Remote Access AutoDial Helper? This last one makes me nervous because of the name, as I don’t want any ""remote access helpers and 2) I’m not on Dial-up. If I deny any of the 2 (1st 2 are grouped together) then FX won’t connect out. btw, using FX as a browser, XP SP3. Also JFMI, Is there anyway to “paragraph” in these Comodo forums… Will “align left do it” or [P]…just something that’s been bothering me about this forum…Thx
SP3 ?s Are these services supposed to be connecting outbound
Outbound DNS to one of your ISP nameservers is usually safe, so long as it’s its just your ISP nameserver, and not some other server out on the Internet.
As to why these services would want Internet access? I have no idea, as I haven’t gotten my hands on a XP SP3 box yet. I don’t know what these services are. Remote Access stuff gets used for a lot of things, dialup among them. The terminology gets confusing sometimes.
As for paragraphing, I’ve found that typing one very long line, followed by , will produce a paragraph. Classic word processing stuff.
Thx for the reply. As far as this not post not relating to CPF, that I don’t understand. It’s a ? directly relating to allow/deny access thru the firewall. Also thx for the as the other forums that I visit use either a
or a “highlight the text and then the indent icon” in their top toolbar for a new paragraph. Just from what I’ve experienced with SP3, if you’ve got your FW & FW rules set to your liking with SP2, then I would continue to use it, until M$ makes you have SP3 to obtain any new windows security updates.
If you’ve got the CFP rules working under XP SP2, then it should be the same under SP3. To my knowledge there’s nothing new in SP3 that should cause CFP any difficulty.
Regarding those services, if things you’re expecting to work somehow don’t work when CFP blocks them, then I think it’s a good indication that those are real legit services. If you click the “allow access and remember” when the CFP alert comes up, you should be alright and the CFP rules get updated properly.
thx. I posted this on an XP board earlier this afternoon, but haven’t got a reply. Do these look legit? Is this Comodo Memory Firewall cmfdll32.dll? If so, does the CMF require loopback?
all of these have requested loopback access, FX as browser.

Sorry for the delay. It’s been a little crazy on the dayjob.
The names for things that have requested the loopback access seem reasonable at first glance. But then the loopback interface is used by processes on your machine to talk to other processes on your machine. Antivirus scanners are typical users of the loopback, but I don’t see any mention of such in your list.
Regarding CMF memory firewall… I don’t know. I don’t have any experience with the product, yet.
