On startup firewall advises such programs as 'jobcheck.exe', agentsvr.exe' and 'winword.exe' are trying access the internet. How can I determine whether I should allow these programs internet access?

Well same happens to me if its a program that you know eg MS Word then think about why it would want to acess the net and determine whether you can trust it !

One idea, would simple to turn off these start ups from msconfig, and if you then have no ill effect, good whereas if you do you can put them back on.

press windows botton then r botton together, turns up run command box
type in run box msconfig, then press enter
mouse over to start ups and turn off those which seem unnessersery.
close and restart your computer.

Try the internet ie 'File Database' and see what goes with Susanne so to speak!
Check Msconfig and selective startup

Once your system is booted up, open up the task manager (control, alt, delete). Choose the processes tab. Then access www.processlibrary.com; you will find a searchable database of most system processes and they should tell you what is running in the background.
If you decide you want to cease the loading of a particular program at startup use the run>msconfig option to remove them. Good luck
