This is a legit process not a virus

Does it need to connect to the internet or just a local network?

feb,

yes it needs to connect to the internet. There are a few different instances of this file in running processes, one which is part of the network settings.

Thanks Joe R, have you any idea how to grant it access with Zone Alarm?

It should be in your "Programme control" panel of Zone alarm as "Generic Host process for win32 services" allow it there...
