Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
For what it's worth, I own a Presario with preloaded Win XP Home and my LSA Shell is an "export version" also.
My hp pavilion with xp media center edition is about a year old and it also has the export version.
CAN YOU BLOCK THE LSA SHELL FROM THE INTERNET SERVER? OR WILL IT CAUSE SERIOU8 PROBLEMS WITH THE COMPUTER AND CAUSE IT TO CRASH AND CAUSE YOU TO HAVE INTERNET CONNECTION PROBLEMS LIKE THEY SAY IT WILL? HELP
My Gateway laptop w/ XP Media Center Edition is about 2 years old and also has the Export Version.
I have a new (Mar 2008) Vostro 1700 laptop with XP-sp2, and it has the "export Version" as well.
shall I allow this to communicate with Windows/system/32/zone labs/avsys/scanning process.exe?
So can this LSA Shell (Export Version) be blocked from accessing the Internet, or is it an essential system process? Occasionally it pops up in my Sygate Firewall Pro, and I say No with no problems.
Have you ever thought that we probably actually all have an export-authorized version (would it only be because foreigners tend to shop in the US and their computers are not scanned when they leave), and that the full encryption's distribution is only delivered to the military and the like? So that "export" rather means "demilitarized"?
Are you for real? Demilitarised encryption? Haven't laughed so much in ages. And people are taking advice on here about securing their PC? Priceless.
demilitarized or not, it means it's not based on strong encryption.
