Problem with zone alarm alerts?

vbimport

#1

Hi all

Lately when i’ve been trying to connect to the net with IE zone alarm has been poping up alerts saying “do you want object:8000101b to access the internet” when i click no IE doesn’t load my homepage it just says “website could not be found” but when I close IE and open it again everything loads fine. When I click yes to allow this “object” IE loads up normally. Here are some of the “objects” that want to use the net :

object:8000101b
object:80009179
object:800092eb
object:800224a4

these are named as they are in zone alarm and this is all i know about them does anyone know what they are or could be?

cheers

thanks for your replies but I still cant work out what program they are from. As that site stated there is no info attached to these files just object: 8xxxxxxx when you try find them it says they dont exist. Its also nice to know they are a product of microsfts incompetence, it seems every version of windows above win95 has an inbuilt trojan to send info out

thanks again
