    Default Services.exe

    Hello,
    I have just installed the newest version of ZA Pro, 8.0.298.000 and noticed for my system that services.exe by default has trusted server rights and no Internet rights. The only program that I have noticed having trusted server rights before was svchost.exe.
    Should services.exe have trusted server rights?
    I have looked under the search option and found threads suggesting yes and maybe. I am just confused as to why this is the first time I have seen this.
    If I change this to ask , what problems would/could this cause?
    Thank you for your time.

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:8.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro

    Services is above svchost in hierarchy. So it implies services runs svchost.
    But svchost does most of the dirty jobs, I guess, which is why it needs trusted server.
    But, I've got it set to "?" just in case is needed. Yet to see it be needed. I think it might call svchost, event log, plugNplay stuff. That's what ProcessExplorer sees.
