Hello, Just a small concern - don't know whether it's anything to worry about. Just moved from win98se to winxp. Used to, and still do, use zonealarm firewall. But I've noticed there's a lot more activity now, where Zonealarm appears to be interacting with the internat a lot more. Also, when downloading, for example a driver package aroung 20mb, the outgoing traffic bar seems to rise up (ie. uploading more). With win98se, I've noticed that when downloading, the outgoing bar always stayed at the first, whereas incoming (green) bar fluctuates, depending on info received. I am accessing net from ethernet router; in winxp, I have to allow Generic Host Process for Win32 services - is this anything to worry about? Thanks for your anticipated input.
