i'm a fairly new user with two questions. your support in helping me understand would be greatly appreciated.
  1. i have a toshiba laptop and i've noticed that the pinger shows up in the programs window of the zone alarm security suite center.
    just the name 'pinger' makes me suspicious. can i prevent the pinger from accessing my system or disable it?
  2. when i initially set up zone alarm, i'd receive messages upon start-up telling me that several programs were attempting to monitor my keystrokes, and i would deny that access.
    all of a sudden i stopped receiving those messages. does that mean that my keystrokes are being monitored? i'd prefer to keep those alerts on so that i know i've denied that access --
    isp, yahoo, etc.

thank you
