I had to go to another Firewall since nod32 stopping checking my emails for Spam / Viruses. I chose VIPRE. I noticed that my AutoTransfers stopped working and I could not long see the server in the Now Playing. I was able to finally access the TiVos (Series2 and Series3) and download the programs. But that was about it. When I open TiVo Desktop (I believe I have 2.8 version) - when I put my mouse over the TiVo Desktop, I get a rotating circle. This was happening the other day as well - but I just left the mouse over the TiVo Desktop and it finally allowed me to pick recordings. I was able to download everything. However, when I go to the Services tab in the TiVo Desktop (and after I can finally choose this menu), I receive an error: The specified service does not exist as an installed service. In my services, I have TiVo Beacon listed, but nothing else. VIPRE software is running in Learning mode. It will allow me to add ports but it also wants the name of the application (which I do not know) for these ports. I did add C:\Program Files\TiVo\Desktop as an always allowed path. I don't know if other services should be running - can you advise? I have not figured out exactly how to creat a new service just yet.. I have been reading a lot of articles but they seem to just apply to servers, etc. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate (I can ask this question on another board and post that here when I get an answer). Thank you!
