svchost.exe

Hi
Have recently installed comodo firewall and it is blocking svchost.exe! Not sure but i dont think it should be blocking,doesn’t appear to be blocking all of them though. Some advise would be great and how to unblock them if needed

svchost.exe is a windows system process, just open the firewall gui, go to network security policy and set svchost.exe as a windows system application

Generally CFP should be allowing svchost connections out, blocking any attempted svchost connections in. svchost should be included under Windows Updater Applications in the Firewall Policies with outbound allowed already. Can you post your log so we can take a look?

Hi thanks for the response,is it the network security policy in advanced firewall settings that i need to be checking?
