Windows Explorer & Zone Alarm

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.

its probably all this crap where explorers become web-based etc
just a theory though ... what woudl happen if u disabled the 'view as webpage' section


maybe its trying to acces the net to get thumbnails for .htm files that are on your drive??

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
