DDE Server

  Jak_1 19:38 19 Jul 2007

Zone Alarm has been asking if I want to allow the pc to connect to the DDE Server, I deny permission as I have no real idea what windows wants it to do or any of my applications and all seem to run fine without this. I have read a little about it but still do not fully understand what it actually does. Would be gratefull if someone could explain please.

Jak_1 knowing you as a regular,i would guess your system is clean.
Therefore i would say its a software app you have asking for permission to update...does that sound about right.

Not totally sure though,but maybe an insight to the prompts.
Hope this helps.

just a further thought,do you play online games at all ?
Maybe this is the reason behind the prompts.

Thanks guys, having just re-installed my system and programs it could be one of my older programs wanting an update. All progs legit so no probs there and they run just as I want them. I will configure zonealarm to autodeny without asking me again.
