    Default Generic Host process for win32 was blocked from accepting a connection from the inter

    I keep getting this every few hours or so and zone alarm auto blocks it every time, its all on the local network and it's always the same but going through different ports.


    Description Generic Host Process for Win32 Services was blocked from accepting a connection from the Internet (192.168.1.104:Port 61888).

    Now I know I don't have malware on my computer because this is a fresh install and I don't download anything and specifically visit only a few safe sites, like wikipedia and some guitar related sites. And since the IP is local I'm guessing someone else on my network has malware thats trying hard to get onto my computer? Or what else could be going on? Thanks.

    ** Snip ** Thanks.
    Here is my two cents worth..

    NOTE: Make sure all of the following Programs have Trusted and Internet access (2 Green Check Marks)
    :a.) All Microsoft and Windows Programs have Green Check marks for Trusted and Internet Access..
    b.) Generic Host Process for win32 Services (svchost.exe) also allow Trusted Server Rights
    c.) IE Crash Detectiond.) Internet Explorer or FireFoxe.)
    d.) Malicious Software Removal Tool
    f.) True Vector Service (If it is listed)
    g.) Zone Alarm Client
    h.) Zone Alarm Updating Client
    i.) Your Email Client needs Trusted, Internet access and Send Mail all need Green check Marks..

    Wouldn't allowing svchost just open my computer to other computers on the networking that are port scanning me!?
