    hi guys

    What is Application Layer Gateway Service (alg.exe) sitting in c>windows>sys32 folder and if i use a third party firewall like is it required?

    Also get the following warning in the firewall log:

    Blocked Incoming TCP

    Blocked incoming UDP

    What is the significance of these messages.

    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

    Tcp and udp are ports whichs services use.
    Firewalls block these all the time.
    don't bother to much on these messages
    If they block them, the firewall does it's job.
