The last few times I've tried to access the internet with any browser(I have IE, opera, and firefox) Zone Alarm will first ask me to allow it to access the internet and gives an ip destination of 127.0.0.1 followed by a port number. After that, it will ask for permission to access the internet, but it will have a different destination ip every time. The second ip is some address followed by DNS. Why does it do this? I don't remember zone alarm behaving this way in the past. I don't know enough about computer security to know if this is something to worry about or not. I'm concerned first that someone else is running a "duplicate" of my browser and using it to hack me or spy on me. I'm concerned secondly about the fact that the second ip address always changes. Also, a couple of times when I clicked on my Opera browser, I got an errormessage saying "another user is using this copy of Opera". I was thinking this message might be related to how Zone Alarm asks twice and might be another reason for concern.Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
