Hello from a long time ZA user,
I've searched these forums for SvcHost discussions and haven't found the answer to my exact question.
I am running a paid version of Internet Security Suite (V8.0.059). Recently, ZA's "Security Alert" window started popping up from my system tray every time I turn on the PC, asking permission for SvcHost.exe. The "Identification" field reads "none" and there is no process ID displayed, so I can't see who is calling SvcHost.
Someone told me that SvcHost might be getting called by a rogue app (spyware/virus), which explains the lack of identification in the ZA "Security Alert" window.
Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
