I am new to firewalls. So, with my Sygate firewall running, I get a lot of information I am unfamiliar with regarding applications that are either trying to get out of my computer (onto the Internet) or get into my computer.

One application that trys (constantly) to get out is NDIS. I can see that it is coming from my system directory. I assume it is a WIN XP application trying to do some harmless activity. But because I am unfamiliar with it, I wanted to get an expert's opinion as to what it is trying to do.

The actual file name is "ndisuio.sys".

Thank you for any help.
