Tcp and udp are ports whichs services use.
alg.exe is a part of the Microsoft Windows operating system. It is a core process for Microsoft Windows Internet Connection sharing and Internet connection firewall. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated
Firewalls block these all the time.
don't bother to much on these messages
If they block them, the firewall does it's job.
