    Default New Network Found Message Everyday

    I've been using ZA Suite for years (version 7.0 right now) and last week I started getting this "New Network Found" message almost everyday when I startup my PC....also I've been getting a message that the Generic Host Service wants access to the Internet, which I've been denying.

    What is causing this to happen?

    Other details:

    I haven't loaded any new software recently
    Running XP Pro
    I usually put my PC in Sleep mode before bed
    The networked PC is a Dell Desktop running XP Media and I'm connected via a router to share our cable modem and printer.
    I haven't installed anything new on the desktop (it does run McAfee Suite though - came free with our Comcast subscription)

    One other thing, is we have a third PC on the network also, that I use for testing and it also is getting the Generic Host Message, but not the New Network Found message.

    Something seems very strange about all this - I've been running clean for years without these types of messages popping up.


    Operating System:Windows XP Pro

    usually this is a sign of corrupted ZA database (where settings are stored).
    Have you tried to reset them?

    This way:
    1.) Hold down the Ctrl and Shift keys together
    2.) Right click on the ZA icon near your clock
    3.) Choose 'Reset' from the box that comes up
    4.) Choose Yes on the Reset Settings dialog box
    5.) When prompted, choose OK to restart your system
    6.) Follow the on screen configuration prompts after reboot
