I use Shaw Secure which is basically F-secure with Shaw Ad's.

http://shawsecure.ca /

http://www.f-secure.com/en_US /

I Also run Protowall in the background on my PC and whenever it's on sure
enough these lines always pop up constantly..

Packet to "Media Force, MCI Communications Services, Inc. d..." (
65.200.212.211 ) blocked. [protocol: TCP - src: 1205 / dst: 80]
Packet from "Media Force, MCI Communications Services, Inc. d..." (
65.200.212.213 ) rejected. [protocol: TCP - src: 80 / dst: 1224]

These packets will be blocked or rejected somtimes 100's of times an hour
24/7

I looked it up and I think it's F-secure's servers. Automatic updates are
OFF. So why does it keep calling out and what is it sending?
Anyone smarter than me in these areas can shed some light? There are alot of
people use Shaw Secure and F-Secure

Not sure, but I have heard that there are "law enforcement" keyloggers
vendors like McAfee and Symantec "refuse" to remove.
