I have a problem with my ZAP often displaying an alert stating that svchost is requesting server access...
This happens on my laptop about once or twice a week just after start-up. It is legitimately Generic Host Process, and not malware, but despite checking "Remember This Setting," I continually receive this Repeat Program Alert on a regular basis.
Should I set Generic Host Process to a "Changes Frequently" setting in order to stop this annoying pop-up?
Here's the alert info:
