    Default generic host process for win32 services....

    is constantly running and downloading something, since every day my backup software backs up around 600,000kb of something.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Hi,

    Welcome to the Forum!

    In your Firewall Program Control Panel, what do you have green check for Generic Host Process, please?

    Hi,

    My settings are almost like yours, except I am blocking Server Trusted for Internet, no ?

    Have you completed lately any type of online scanning for bugs, that may have gotten into your computer?

    Here are a couple of sites, that I use to cross check all of my Security Programs, if you are interested.

    Thanks, I think this all started when I installed XP Service Pack 3.
    I guess nobody else has anything to say, so I thank you.
