    Best change the suffix from .com to .org to make the link work properly.

    Here is the edited version of that link:

    Default Re: svchost.exe alert - What's Running? 2.2

    There is a program called &quot;What's Running? 2.2&quot; It is free for personal use!

    http://www.whatsrunning.net/whatsrunning/main.aspx

    This is like the Windows Task Manager (WTM) BUT ON STEROIDS! Anything I can do in the WTM, I can do in &quot;What's Running&quot; and SO MUCH MORE!

    When I look in the &quot;Processes&quot; tab I see the individual processes and when I click on a process name, the information about it is displayed in box beside the process tab. This Information box shows the Process Properties and everything you would want to know about the Properties. The Information box shows how many &quot;Services&quot; are using this process and everything you would want to know about these services. It then shows how many &quot;Modules&quot; are involved and everything you would want to know about these Modules, and finally it shows how many &quot;IP sockets&quot; are being used for this process, and everything you would want to know about these Sockets!

    I am barely scratching the surface here but the really cool thing is that using this program I know EXACTLY what is running what.

    If I still am not sure about something I can right click on the process and &quot;Get Info Online&quot;. SO MUCH MORE to this program!

    DNS is the domain name system.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_Name_System

    What is does: translates the url or name into the exact machine code or IP address to get to sites of the network (occasionally) and internet (almost always).
    It makes you windows/browsers/updaters/email clients/etc get the needed info to get to where it wants to go to.

    I am guessing your router is the DNS server and your computer is not using the DNS server(s) of your provider.
    I am also guessing you have more than one computer on your home network. Or maybe a networked printer/scanner or a networked game box.


    This will help you, I hope:

    Make sure your DNS and DHCP server IP's are in your Firewall's Trusted zone. Finding DNS and DCHP servers, etc

    1. Go to Run and type in command and hit 'ok', and in the command then type in ipconfig /all then press the enter key. In the returned data list will be a line DNS and DHCP Servers with the IP address(s) listed out to the side. Make sure there is a space between the ipconfig and the /all, and the font is the same (no capitals).
    2. In ZA on your machine on the Firewall, open the Zones tab, click Add and then select IP Address. Make sure the Zone is set to Trusted. Add the DNS IP(s) .
    3. Click OK and Apply. Then do the same for the DHCP server.
    4. The localhost (127.0.0.1) must be listed as Trusted.
    5. The Generic Host Process (svchost.exe) as seen in the Zone Alarm's Program's list must have server rights for the Trusted Zone.
    Plus it must have both Trusted and Internet Access.

    Extra help is found at Guru Hoov site for the DNS/DHCP.
