    I'm running Windows XP, Ad-aware Plus 5.83, Norton AntiVirus 2003, and ZoneAlarm Pro 3.5.

    I have a program somewhere that is trying to access my local internet. Since I don't know what it is, I just say block it in ZoneAlarm. Another window in ZoneAlarm pops up and asks if I want to allow it to be a server. Again I say block it. A few days later I get the same file again but the name is slightly different. This keeps happening and I don't know what parent program is doing this.

    Here are the file names in ZoneAlarm under Program Controls:

    Object:80000e17
    Object:8000185c
    Object:800018bd
    Object:80004e46

    When you click on one of them and look in the "Entry Detail", all you see is this:
    Product name =
    File name = Object: 80000e17
    Version =
    Created date = [invalid date]
    File size = 0 KB

    If you right mouse click on it a choose Properties, all I get is "The parameter is incorrect".
    There is no path to any of these files.

    I've search my computer but I can't find a match.
    I've done a Google Search.
    I even tried contacting ZoneAlarm. They said "do a Google Search".

    Is this spyware?
    I am running Kazaa Lite, Office XP, Easy CD Creator 5, and other Adobe products as well.
    How do I figure out which of the many program is doing this?

    Thanks for any help given.

    Just after I wrote my above post another attempt was made.

    Here is what I see when I click on the More Info button when a new program is detected:

    I finally got another responce from ZoneAlarm after I responded back and said I still have a problem.

    This is what they said:

    Thank you for contacting Zone Labs. The issue which you reported is
    currently a known issue to us. Our engineers are working toward
    resolving this. Currently, we plan on this being resolved in our
    next release of ZoneAlarm Pro.

    In some of the cases, a program may stop working if you deny access
    to the "unknown process" and Or Objects XXXXXXX (these usually show the process as trying
    to access DNS via port 53). If you deny access and a program stops
    working, you may need to shut down and restart that program - then
    you will need to allow the access. However, you should NOT check the
    box to remember that choice.

    Best Regards,
