    I had this happen in Win98 too, so I'm hoping someone here
    can explain why it happens.

    I'm running ZoneAlarm, and when I open Windows Explorer,
    ZoneAlarm informs me that Windows Explorer is trying to access
    the internet.

    What's up with that? I thought it was a glitch in Win98, but
    obviously not, since XP is doing the same thing.

    Any theories? Thanks.
