That "Crap" are the application that are running on your system and they can be listed for a hundreds of times if you have more then one instance of the application running such as multiple iexplorer.exe if you have more then one Internet Explorer windows open.

What applications are currently begin blocked?

I can see Guard.exe but i am not sure what it is. Open up My Computer > Change Settings > Add / Remove Applications and browse trough the list to see if you have any application name firewall.

Also in My Control Panel if you are running Windows XP Service Pack 2 you will note that you have an icon named firewall. If so open it up and Turn It OFF.

Hi David: Thank you for your reply. The applications I am running are available to view through Windows Task Manager. The only applications I cam currently running are one internet window and one word window yet all these processes continue to be running in the background. Are there any I can safely terminate? The application that is being blocked is the publishing software for my website. I keep getting an error message that indicates it cannot connect to the internet due to a firewall.

there are a number of issues that can cause this.

here is a good resource for looking up your process's: http://www.liutiliti...processlibrary/
if you can't find a specific process there then you can google it.

What firewall are you using? also are you using a router? What software/website is being blocked?

Hi Again: Thanks for your input. The only firewall I am aware that I am running is windows and I have turned it off. The software I am trying to run is Blue Voda website publishing software. I keep getting an error indicating a firewall is preventing it from connecting to the internet to publish the site. I'm not using a router. Just a simple modem. One computer.

Do you have a VodaHost account?

BlueVoda will only publish to a VodaHost account


Check here for possible solutions.

This is from that link I posted.

Support Center » Troubleshooter » I can't publish my website.



This is not a new account, I have published before.

If this is NOT a new account, it can only be one of the below reasons.

You have altered your password and now it does not work.
Solution: open a support ticket and request a password reset.

When you visit your website on the internet you see that your account has been suspended.
Solution: open a support ticket and ask us what is going on.

You have deleted some critical files from the server and now your account is dysfunctional.
Solution: open a support ticket and request an account reset.

You have published and all you see is "index of" with a bunch of files listed
Solution: You have named one or more pages incorrectly.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am just assuming you have published to both accounts before.



Or, another support topic (related to firewall)


12029 Error
Solution A 12029 error is a firewall issue error. This means that one or more firewalls is
blocking your attempt to publish with BlueVoda. Please follow the below steps:

97% of the time this can be attributed to your Windows XP Firewall Please follow
the following steps...

1) Go to your computers control panel
2) Click on widows firewall
3) Click on exceptions
4) Click on add programs
5) Add BlueVoda to your list of programs
6) Press ok
7) Reboot your computer

You have now successfully added BlueVoda to your safe programs list.
You should not have this problem again. If the problem persists. Your
computer might have a secondary firewall from Norton or MacAfee.
You will also have to BlueVoda to their safe programs list.
