I have the same question and emailed ZA it about last week. They sent me a very long reply that completely avoided answering the essence of my question: What is the risk of allowing the "Generic Host Process" access to the internet or, especially, allowing it to act as a server? I also asked about ICQ because it wants to act as a server also (I never allow it to do so). However, I have no clue why it needs to act as a server or the consequences/benefits of not allowing this.
Any insight into this would certainly be appreciated.
I just ried it and its true...if I don't allow it to act as a server, none of my remote comps on the network can get out o the web...this is baffling. I've been looking around the net for answers to this "service's" function but nothing came up...wierd...could it be spyware acting? damn im getting paranoid.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
