I have a Uniden wireless security system installed. The system consists of two wireless cameras and a small, handheld receiver with an LCD screen. The receiver has a USB connector to allow it to connect to my laptop. Software runs on the laptop which allows me to monitor the cameras and record the video from the receiver. The cameras communicate wirelessly only to the receiver, not to my computer.
Here's the odd thing - there is constant outgoing network activity associated with the executable, Uniden Surveillance System.exe. I cannot disable the wireless interface on my laptop as that is necessary to communicate with my router/hub. I got into the Windows 7 firewall settings and created a rule to block network access for the Uniden exe but the resource meter continues to show two outgoing connections running at around 67 bytes/sec each. One connection is to 18.104.22.168 and the other to 255.255.255.255.
My firewall settings for the new rule are
General Enabled Block the connection Programs and Services %ProgramFiles%\Uniden Surveillance System\Uniden Surveillance System.exe Protocols and Ports Protocol type: Any Local port: All Ports Remote port: All Ports Scope Local IP address: Any Remote IP Address: Any Advanced All profiles and interface types are selected
Can anyone enlighten me as to how I can block this?
