"a change was made by a known application" alert
Windows defender is giving me an alert that reads as SUBJ line says whenever
I go to connect or disconnect to a network and it lists MSWSOCK.dll. What
change was made? I click on the bubble that pops up and it either goes away
or the configfree selection box pops up. this has been happening since I
installed the Winows Vista Service Pack 1 (KB936330) update a few days ago.
what did it (the service pack 1) do and how do I get the alert to stop
popping up all the time.

Re: "a change was made by a known application" alert
In WD
go into tools/options
Scroll down where you see:
"Choose if windows Defender should notify you about"
Uncheck Software that has not been classified for risks"
Scroll all the way down and click "SAVE"
If that doesn't resolve it- then also uncheck- Changes made to your ocmputer
by software that is permitted to run
Make sure you click "Save" again
