Whenever I restart my computer, which isn’t very often, I receive pop-ups from Comodo Firewall concerning svchost.exe and explorer.exe. So I have allowed them. I also get a pop-up for explorer.exe when a search my computer for a file using Windows Search, which I have set to block and log. My question is, does everyone know a complete set of rules I should have for these two so I won’t be prompted with anymore connection attempts?
Yeah, I could set them both to outgoing only, but what about the inbound connection I keep getting from my router, which is DHCP? Should I just ignore it? How am I going to get my IP through DHCP everytime I restart my computer if I set svchost.exe to outgoing only? Pic of this connection below.
Your rule is fine for DHCP especially as you have set a IP range I do not need one as I have set a fixed IP.
The 127.0.0.1 is for local traffic.
I block the second does not cause problems it might for you.
Block rule you could remove the IP and make any.
Also have one other because I run a proxy this blocks explorer internet access aswell as the block on port 80.
