Generic host process for win32 services-zone alarm

  wots it all about 09:47 05 Jun 2005

Hiya all
I have zone alarm pro, and it keeps asking me about this "Generic host process for win32 services trying to act as a server"
It says it is a known prog, the application is svchost.exe and the port is 135. I have read several articles on this process ranging from "delete it" (!) to "its nothing to worry about."
Please can anyone confirm if its safe to grant it access.
Thank you!

these are the processes that Windows uses to connect to the Internet. Allow them.

You should have one instance if this program running in ZA give it the 4 green ticks in program control> program tab> highlight it and select allow.
