My Sygate firewall is displaying this message every few mins

An application named NT Kernel & System (file name nyoskrnl.exe) has been blocked from accessing the network

I checked my settings and the NT Kernel is set to Allow. Can you stop this message from popping up and beeping in my earphones every minute or so

Already done. makes no difference

The only thing that would be expected to cause that behaviour is if the file has been modified since the last warning.

Right click the Sygate icon in the task bar, tick Options, tick OK. On general tab tick Hide Notification Messages and see if that helps.

OK. So what should I do to stop it

  AJ25 16:47 27 Jul 06

I mean what is it? What is trying to happen?

I hope you meant ntoskrnl.exe

nyoskrnl.exe is an unkown file.

The only similar file I have set to allow in sygate is the Kernel32.dll in C:\Windows\ system.
Suggest you go to Start/Find and enter nyoskrnl.exe in the box and see where it is. If it shows up in sygate I suggest you block it.
Incidentally, I have Win 98SE and assume you have Win XP (You didn't say!) so things could be different.
It could be a system file trying to contact home (Bill Gates).

This happened to me last week - I uninstalled sygate, deleted all files from the system, rebooted, and reinstalled it from scratch. That cured the bugger!
