Thread: Security Alert for ScanningProcess.exe

    Default Security Alert for ScanningProcess.exe

    I am running Security Suite ver. 7.0.302.00

    What are the default settings - "allow", "block", or "ask" for ScanningProcess.exe?

    When I start a virus scan, a security alert screen pops up claiming suspicious behavior with ScanningProcess.exe trying to access \systemroot\system32\smss.exe

    I would have thought that the default settings for ScanningProcess.exe would have been "allow", as the file is supposed to be part of the ZoneAlarm file system.

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
    Software Version:7.0

    Thanks for the response. The trust level was set to the highest level and all other settings were green checks. After switching all levels to "ask" the security alert disappeared.

    Since someone has recently tried to drain my checking account electronically, I'm looking for the gap in my defenses.
