Zone Alarm
« on: March 04, 2009, 01:21:18 AM »
Zone Alarm has blocked 2220 access attempts since last night isn't this an unusually high amount?

Also some windows programs have given themselves automatic access that they didn't have last night when zone alarm configured itself. Spooler Subsystem, Userinit Login Application, Services and Controls, and LSA shell were given internet access and trusted access without me configuring them...Zone Alarm never did this before should i be worried?

Hi Eminem,

Can you explore a bit more on what was blocked, did you get the ZA message from the browser why this particular thing was blocked by ZA? Did you check your settings of Za for program allowances? Did malware change these settings? Were your SpywareBlaster settings altered? Did you check your host file for changes you did not perform?
Can you produce a hjt logfile as an added txt to your next posting:  download here: http://www.filehippo.com/download_hijackthis/download/58170ee6e58bba306c943f5b6d745c99/

Hi Eminem,

I would like you to fix the two entries for AskBar - AskService.exe may lay at the root of the problems you mentioned. Nasty, so remove: http://coolbusteratyourservice.blogspot.com/2009/01/how-to-completely-remove-askbar-toolbar.html

thanks but i still don't know why zone alarm gave these programs automatic access again to the internet: system32/services.exe, system32/lsass.exe, system32/userinit.exe. Also should zone alarm updating be allowed under the server options? It is at the moment.

Hi Eminem,

How that was? Just simply by installing the Ask.service, but it, good ol' ZA, tried to protest a mere 2220 times against this. Finally you posted here, we listened to its outcry, and we came to the rescue of poor ZA by disabling the crap that seduced it to automatically access what you mention. Do not blame ZA, it has done what it can do, but the user overrides it, and again be very cautious of what you do allow to land onto your machine in the form of executables or you must trust them fully and beyond any doubt. Remember you can always return to this forum for an advice from us. That is why we are here, and you are a member of this community now. Welcome to the forums, my friend,

Hi and thanks but that doesn't answer my question. Should Zone alarm updating be allowed to access everything internet and server? And should system32/services.exe, system32/lsass.exe, system32/userinit.exe have been given automatic access to the internet?
