Zone Alarm Query

  TechMad 09:50 15 Aug 2003

I am running ZoneAlarm 4.0 on Windows XP home edition. My question is should I let system processes like 'svchost.exe' etc access the internet. Is this likely to weaken my firewall defence?

Deny access to anything that you're unsure of. If denying access results in something that you intended/needed to happen fails then you can always try again and grant permission.

Incidentally, as far as I'm aware, svchost.exe shouldn't be trying to access the internet. Try running Spybot or similar.
