Because of all what had been going on lately with my ZA Free Firewall, while I was scrolling through the list of its 90 secured programs I noticed something strange. There are two programs that have their trust level set to "Super" yet all incoming & outgoing options are set to be blocked.
"smss.exe" located in C:\Windows\System32\smss.exe file size 110 KB &...
"Windows Start-up Application" Located in C:\Windows\System32\wininit.exe version: 6.1.7600.16385 (win7_rtm.090713-1255) & it's file size is 126 KB.
If these programs are legit & at the super trusted level then why are the: Outbound Trusted, Outbound Internet, Inbound Trusted & Inbound Internet levels set to "Deny"?
It should also be noted that since I've installed this latest version of ZA free I haven't gotten any popup messages for these programs asking for internet usage. All messages that I have gotten were for other legit programs that I of course set to "Always Allow". Could this be a glitch because I have all my Zone levels set to high & my network firewall set to screen all programs?
