    Every time I use the on screen keyboard & I click on a key,any key, my Zone Alarm pro pops up to say that osk.exe has been bloked from accessing the internet, but it does not list an IP number or DNS in the log, it even lists it as `unknown` in the Type coloum where normally it says `program access` for every other thing logged there. If it makes any difference once it named it as OSK.exe in upper case. Anyone had this before, is it normal? a bug maybe?
    XP Home SP2. Thank you for any help on this that you can give.
    Does anyone have the MD5 for the osk.exe file? thanks ;) would it be ok to try & delete the osk & replace it using system repair with the origional XP disk? or doesn`t it work like that? o_O
