    Default Internet Access on Save

    Just lately,
    every program
    I use, if I save a file, the program I am using
    wants access to the internet.
    For example, this includes programs like
    MS Paint, Word Pad, and other programs.
    Each program wants to connect to the same IP.
    The IP address traces to a CH Products page, so maybe this is some type of a DOS attack thing?
    This all started happening about the time I downloaded and installed several freeware programs, so I wouldn't be surprised if I pick up something.
    I have run detailed virus scans, and I have a few other adware type programs running more aggressively for
    the past few days.
    Nothing has indicated any virus or other issues that has solved.
    I have tried several searches but it's hard to search with these key words.
    Does anyone know what could be going on?
    Zone Alarm has been my firewall of choice for as long as I had high speed.
    I like keeping an eye on what wants to use the internet.
    Thanks ZA!

    That is an age old problem..Not all Free Programs are Free of unintended consequences..Some Free programs, including Game, may include Backdoor Access to your Computer, or ET Phone Home, or Keystroke Loggers etc..Once You download and Install them, you may inadvertently Over ridden the Protection that ZA Firewall can n ot protect you from yourself..Please read and Follow the Advice by Guru Fax in this Forum Link..http://forum.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/b...essage.id=3787
