The Personal Firewall feature in BT Virus Protect automatically allows useful programs to communicate over the Internet while blocking spyware, viruses and worms.

There are three types of firewall alert that you may see:

Red alert:

A red alert means your firewall has detected and blocked a Trojan on your computer and recommends that you scan for anymore threats. A Trojan appears to be a normal program, but can disrupt, damage, and provide unauthorised access to your computer.

Yellow alert:

The yellow alert is the most common, it means that a suspicious activity on your computer has been detected by your firewall. The alert will describe the activity and then tell you how you can deal with it.

Green alert:

Green alert provides basic information about an event and you don't need to respond.
