    Okay, I restarted my MBP dude to it not recognizing my external HD or USB sticks, and after it had started back up, I keep getting these pop ups asking me to 'allow' or 'deny' to connect to 'port' or something.. I have no idea what is going on, there is a new icon on the tool bar at the top of my desktop, when i hover my cursor over it says "show/hide network monitor"

    Have I done something wrong? Becasue every programme/app i open it pops up with "etc etc would like to connect to port80" etc..

    I've attached some pictures, please someone help.

    Thanks.

    Little Snitch isn't a firewall, it's an advanced network monitor. Firewalls protect you from outside threats, while Little Snitch monitors and gives you control over what goes out from your computer.

    Yes I did install that today, but it asked me to restart my mac to complete install, and i was in the middle of doing something, so i went to activity monitor and force quit the little snitch,

    I deleted the little snitch files, so why am i still getting this pop up, how can I get rid of it?

    thanks for replying.

    Little Snitch is typically difficult to delete. Check out this manual step by step guide to fully delete a program from OS X.
