Hi everyone. I’ve just gotten WinXP up & running now as a dual boot system,(98/ & XP Home Edition). After going online via my XP partition & installing/setting up my anti-virus software,accessing the net to d/l the latest updates, I then installed ZoneAlarm. (Basic free edition).
It was while accessing the Internet on Win XP Home Ed., a second time,with Zonealarm running that I had two program requests that I’ve never heard of.
One was a internet access request identified as
V.5.1.2600 Mircrosoft Operating system 50kb
The second was a server request which had accessed the 'net before I had installed Zonealarm on XP.
Do you allow Generic Host Process for Win 32 services to access connections from the internet
Version: 5.1.2600 Microsoft Windows Operating system 12kb
They’re both WinXP/Microsoft app’s, but being an XP newbie, I have no idea what either “spoolsv.exe” or “svchost.exe” are?
Anything related to Windows XP Windows update?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts,I’ve refused them access via ZoneAlarm, until I know what M$ app’s they are.
