This is my first post here, but I've been a fan of this site for years. My question concerns some recent behavior that I have not seen before with Zone Alarm. I've had Zone Alarm Pro for a few years, but the new version 5.5.062.004 has been adding a host of programs to the program control list. In the past it had to be something that was asking for internet access (svchost.exe) or when I did a antivirus update (I used NOD32) but lately it seems almost everything is being adding by Zone Alarm to the program control list. Windows Explorer ( I do not use IE for browsing) or NT Logon or even applications that I use without accessing the internet. It may mean nothing, but I'm always a bit suspicious. I hate to think about switching firewall software. Has anyone heard anything about this, and is it anything to be concerned about? Also, any ideas on how to stop it from happening in the first place. Thanks.
