I have 3 VPN services that I never installed. Is that normal? Windows 8.1

I am not sure if they were there before, but I updated to windows 8.1, and I went into my firewall and noticed the three different VPNs which had full access.. I never downloaded any of those, so I wonder if they were included with the 8.1 upgrade..they are


F5VPN
JuniperVPN
CheckPoint VPN



Do you guys have these? I never downloaded them manually.

Checkpoint is part of 8.1.

My bad, I misread. I thought you were talking about existing VPN connections, not just firewall rules. I wouldn't worry about it.

Yeah, they are firewall rules. I used bitlord at the time, and I think I had utorrent. And yes, it happened when I upgraded to windows 8.1 from 8. Those three are normal?

All three of those VPN plug-ins are included with Windows 8.1 so it's normal for them to have firewall rules giving them access to the network. Another VPN plug-in that is part of Windows 8.1 is SonicWALL so there's no need to worry about seeing that either.
