    Default What is the Privacy Service? < Updating ZA Helped

    Can somebody direct me to where I can find information about the Privacy Service, what it is, what it does, and why I might need it? I've been crawling through this forum for two days and haven't seen anything about it.

    I'm using ZoneAlarm Free v13.1.211.00 on win64 7
