Windows Security Alert

  Bonzy 17:09 22 May 06

Hello friends.
Each time I log onto my new Win XP standalone pc a security alert window opens as follows:

"Windows Security Alert.

To help protect your computer, Windows firewall
has blocked some feature of this program.

Do you want to keep blocking this program?

Publisher: Unknown


Since I'm not sure what to do, I've always been clicking on the ASK ME LATER button. Which of the 2 remaining options do I click on to stop this window coming up each time I log on?
KEEP BLOCKING or UNBLOCK? Please advise.
Thanks in advance.

That's part of Sun Java. Personally, I'd block it, but I tend to block all non-essential access. Up to you, but you should probably tune your Java settings in the Control Panel, and on a vaguely related note, maybe get a decent firewall?
