False Positive or For Real Threat


Recommended Posts

I had Symantec/Norton's Small Biz End Protection instaled on my system but quickly decided it was not worth the performance drain and had it removed today (a week later).  Now I am getting a Website Blocking pop up that will not go away. 


The IP Address is


The Port:  5631


Type:  Inbound


Process:  C:\Program Files (x86)\Symantec\pcAnywhere\awhost32.exe


I don't know if these are residual files left from the uninstall,* false positives or a real problem. 



*When I tried to go in and delete the files it indicated I needed Admin rights...I hate to go back to this person that I told to remove the Symantec Program to begin with and don't know that they would respond anyway.


I tried following the instructions for how to disable the website blocking pop up but it was greek to me plus I figured I should check first.   I would greatly appreciate if someone could help me out.  Also, please note that I am **not** a geek.  I am just a confused business woman trying to get back to doing my work.  What that means is, whatever you tell me must be in simplistic terms or it will be of no use to me.  This is the first time I have ever been on a forum....I hope I am not getting in over my head.  I just want some help.


Thanks much,
