I noticed this morning when I turned on the new laptop here at home (not connected to the internet), that there was a program added to Program Control in ZA that must have been added on its own sometime last night after I installed ZA 6.5.737 (and AVG A/V and A/S Free) at my friends house (and was connected to the internet at various times via his Ethernet cable, and behind his own firewall/router).
It was this program: spooler subsystem app
And it had two green checkmarks (one in Access-Trusted and one in Access-Internet, with ?'s in the two server columns). It wasn't automatically added when ZA installed, because I checked right after the install finished. And it *never* asked me for permission or alerted me that it was being added (so I guess it's possible that it never actually connected to the internet).
I have never seen this program in ZA on my current/old laptop.
So I removed it (ignoring that warning ZA gives you about removing system programs or something -- which I also ignore when I remove Windows Explorer when that gets added).
I'll have to see if it gets added back after I connected to his Ethernet again tomorrow... but any idea why this showed up?
Anything to be worried about? (Note that I was not part of a network or anything that I know of...)
(I have since scanned my new laptop with AVG A/V and A/S free and both showed clear -- just FYI.)
Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
