Hi Marianna,
I'm just going to throw my shoe in here and hope it doesn't offend.
OK, I have ZAPro, UIA.net, ACS Computers, and win32 services driving me nuts. All of these entities are honest and believe they are right.
ZApro has twice blocked some kind of interaction between win32 services on my pc and UIA's computers. The file involved is svchost and I know there is a disease out there involving that file. Now there are some weird coincedences here. I would never have noticed the UIA connection except I know the man who started the company. I couldn't for the life of me figure out why they would be trying to access my pc. As it turns out, I did not know this til today, ACS, who built this little beauty, uses UIA as a dsl provider. ACS reformatted this pc three weeks ago. UIA sayes ACS is responsible, ACS sayes I am responsible, I say it's the two of them just to have something to say. WHAT do you say?
THANKS

I'm an idiot, obviously this is not the place for my previous post. I hope some heads up M catches it before all of CNET knows how lame I am. Mia Culpas, I am, in my defence, a total newbie here.

Hi relentlesss

You are "lucky" your shoe didn't get lost in here Wink

Generic Host Process for Win32 Services

First of all, did you run ad aware, spybots&D and Housecall??

If you have the DNS client enabled in XP, Generic Host Process for Win32 Services (svchost.exe), will do the DNS lookup by contacting your ISPs DNS servers.

Since you really don't want to give svchost unfettered access to the Internet, add the IPs of the DNS servers to the trusted zone and allow svchost.exe access to te trusted zone. you can get the IPs at the dos prompt with an ipconfig /all or if you have a router in its DHCP information.
