This is what happens right after you install SpyBlocker

This is very strange - I had no alerts at all from ZAP. Best try the SB forum - linked off www.morelerbe.com/spyblocker.
Block it. It shouldn't need to connect to work, since it's local to your system.

This is simply because you checked option USE SAFE LOADING which uses an anonimyser proxy to load images that would otherwise be blocked.
From help file (helps to read it sometimes ) :
Safe Loading - If checked, Spyblocker will load site graphics normally blocked, thru a protected anonimized proxy
If you uncheck the option, then this connection will not occur.
Sorry I can't find the Safe Loading option in my FREE version.
You must be using version prior to 5.0 which did not have this option. But i don't recall prior versions using anonimyser either (my memory don't go that far....geez anyone know where i was yesterday ? )
Nope it was me Mickey
I was the one with the DUH moment again. The option is right on the
main splash screen.
Dang my new job must be more stressing than I thought.
Read Help file? What's that ? LOL
setting a blocking rule in your firewall would defeat the purpose of checking the option to use the anonimyser proxy.
It's up to you wether you want to load the graphics or not , but if you do, there handled in a more safe way through the anonimyser proxy
And the Help file can be accessed through that same main splash screen
