Computer much quieter now since major security updates
For months I thought there was a security issue with my computer, I know when I visited a certain couple of websites my computer would go berserk making a noise like the processor was working hard, but since me updating windows yesterday which was microsofts biggest ever security update addressing 37 vunerabities in 13 buletins my computer has been really quite. I'm now thinking the noise which I was hearing was my firewall protecting me from attack. What I would like to know is if I can set the firewall to alert me when an attack occurs, as at present the only evidence I get of my computer being compromised is what I see in the monthly report. I would like to see a pop up alerting me at the time of the event.
