running program

By JAC66 ·
I noticed a program running in tak manager but have no idea what it is. The program is alg.exe.
I have stopped the process but not noticed any difference on my pc, any ideas what the program is and what it does?

Anytime you find a program or process that you are unsure of, just "google" it. Go to www.google.com and enter the file in question and hit enter. The vast majority of times, something useful will be returned.

the only thing wrong with googling is you better have a fully patched box and foxfire and a well honed sense of internet safety. otherwise you asking for it, imho.
alg.exe, as Searched for in Microsoft Knowlege Base (mskb) found at support.microsoft.com sez it is Application Layer Gateway applet. Sez is used by Windows Firewall or ICS (Internet connection sharing). does that help any?
