From time to time, I am seeing a ZAP Security Alert for SUSPICIOUS BEHAVIOR that I always Deny.
The warning states:
"Internet Explorer is attempting to monitor user activity on this computer.
If allowed it may try to track or log keystrokes (user input), mouse movements/clicks, web sites visited, and other user behaviors.
Application: iexplore.exe
Allow or Deny".

In addition, the SmartDefense Advisor Technical Info for the OSFirewall Alert refers to the Sub Event Type as "ExecutionGlobalWindowsHook", explaining that "Internet Explorer attempted to set a Windows hook without a specific thread".
In ZAP Program Control I have IE Trust Level set to Ask, Access toTrusted and Internet Zone
is Allowed, Server rights for Trusted and Internet Zone set to Ask.
As I stated, I always Deny this behavior, and my browser does not malfunction in any way.
On one hand, it really gives me cause for concern, but on another level, I think
it might just be the OSFirewall reacting to IE7.0 and the settings I have.

I'm at a loss.
All security apps show clean scans.
I checked the MD5 hash of IE7 and it is okay.
Perhaps some Gurus here can suggest to me
what the heck is going on?
