New Program Indicator Noise
I just installed a new software program that apparently talks to itself internally.
This, in a way that makes my Zone Alarm tray indicator light up like a Christmas tree -- that is, it flashes in and out traffic all the time!
Of course, only the tiniest portion of this is now real traffic with the Internet.
Nearly all of it's a registering of this new program's internal activity.
Is there a setting I can adjust in my ZA to return this indicator to only showing real Internet traffic?
Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

Enable the alerts, please, and see what IP it's talking to, and what is the application. Some of them can't be shut up, in which case, I'd report it to the application owner. Ask them what it's all about.
I've seen one anitivirus application do it (AntiVir), it drove me nuts. But the update changed that, and it's now quiet.
