    Default Generic Host Process for Win32 Service wants to accept connections from the Internet

    First, I am a novice using this for the first time. My frustration continues to mount as without fail, every time I boot my computer and am online, I receive countless messages stating "Generic Host Process for Win32 Service wants to accept connections from the Internet."

    I click deny and the message reappears. I click deny again, and the message reappears. This can happen 3-5 times in a row. It will also pop up from time to time while I am surfing.

    Does anyone know if it would be okay to check "allow" and stop this from happening? Thanks. This has become a royal pain.

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro

    Internet - usually Red X, but if you find that some Microsoft related program/ app/ activity - does not function correctly - you may put in a &quot; ? &quot; while you use the Microsoft program ( if you use Microsoft Live Messenger or Microsoft Update, etc., you may try ' ? ' instead of 'Red X' to see if it helps )<hr>Summary - Super Trust Level - three green bars -

    Thank you, NaiveMelody, for responding. While I already had checked the things you mentioned, I printed it out and double-check everything. Still can't help but wonder why this started happening a few weeks ago. I would guess that ZoneAlarm changed something (or Microsoft)and caused this annoying message. As seen on this forum, others were experiencing the same situation. Thanks again. People like you are life-savers. People like me appreciate you!

    Hi!
    then it means your ZA settings are corrupted and you may need to reset them.

    Usually ZA settings get corrupted for the following reasons:

    - Your PC has crashed/hang recently;
    - You are infected by malware
    - You performed cold shutdown (forced shutdown of the machine)
    - You are running conflicting application

    To reset the settings do the following:

    1.) Hold down the Ctrl and Shift keys together
    2.) Right click on the ZA icon near your clock
    3.) Choose 'Reset' from the box that comes up
    4.) Choose Yes on the Reset Settings dialog box
    5.) When prompted, choose OK to restart your system
    6.) Follow the on screen configuration prompts after reboot

    Do not load any previous back of ZA settings.
    You may need to repeat the reset if you see that still ZA does not remember it program permission.

    Hope this helps

    Cheers,
