Hello:

After installing Windows XP SP 3 this morning, I find six entries in my ZAISS OS Firewall logs which state that a program called : "Fix CCS MaxSubkeyName mismatch " had attempted to alter ZAISS registry entries and was blocked. I do see this program listed in the ZAISS programs list, with no Trust Level assigned by Smart Defense and only ? marks next to all the permissions.

This is a Windows Software Distribution program. Apparently it was trying to "correct" some registry entries of ZAISS during the installation process of SP3 this morning. There are six such entries about attempts to alter six ZA registry keys.

I'll copy n paste two such entries from my OS Firewall logs below. Should I give this program a high confidence level and find a way to allow it to fix those registry entries? If so how do I do that?

Or, was this blocking of attempted registry changes desirable?



Thanks in advance:
