If no success here, try posting it (with a bit more detail) to the Zone Alarm forum. You will find it at click here under support.

i dont understand what more details i can give.my zone alarm asked me if i wanted to run iewww.i have tried google and zone alarm but can get no details on what it is.everything is working fine without it but it has returned several times randomly.there is not a lot else that i can tell you exept that this has been happening since my first post on monday.i had hoped to get an answer here but i guess it must be the holiday season.i will keep the thread running in case anyone has heard of "iewww".
i guess i will have to try other forums.thank you johnsims

Just googling it says it is ie www, this is Internet Explorer www.
If you have XP it is probably trying to update XP or prepare you for SP2.

when i google it i get a gay site devoted to a footballer.now i am not homophobic so dont link gay and virus or bad things together but as i dont want porn dialers on my pc i kept an open mind,denyed it and asked the question here on monday.i guess no one else has had it on their zone alarm.the question still stands "what is it" if it is a virus i could be doing you a favour."if your zone alarm flags it up.what would you do?

If you have the free version of ZA just allow it to connect but do not tick the box to always allow. if you have a firewall you will probably have antivirus and spyware deletion programmes installed so give it a try, by clicking allow without ticking the box it will only allow it to connect once and next time it will ask you again.

It sometimes pays to be wise.

Have you looked in Task Manager to see if iewww is listed as a running process?

Have you done a search for iewww.* to see if it is on your hard drive?

Might give a clue...
