    Hi, I just downloaded and installed the trial version of ewido anti-malware. When I start the program I get a ZoneAlarm security alert telling me that "anti-malware is trying to change my network settings by modifying the file: WINDRVDIR\etc\hosts". The offending application is listed as SecuritySuite.exe. Is this behavior normal and should I allow anti-malware to modify the hosts file? Thanks!

    You should let ZoneAlarm allow that action.
