Hi, I am running ZoneAlarm 6.1.737.000 (free) under Windows XP SP2. I see some strange DNS lookup behaviour I don't understand. I cleared my list of programs in ZA. Then when I start a program which asks for internet access, I expect ZA to pop up a 'new program' screen indication the destination IP and protocol/port used. Indeed this happens, but strangely enough there are DNS queries to IP addresses other than
DNS server. Let's say I update my McAfee virusscanner. After this I start AdAware, and use its update function. Then I see a DNS query initiated by AdAware to the IP address of McAfee!!
I think the only DNS queries I ever should see are to my network DNS server(s), never to other machines. Is this correct?
