Whenever i am online, my Zonealarm firewall detects "svchost.exe" asking for permission to access the internet! If i deny, i am unable to browse...so i have to grant it access everytime i am online.
Could anyone tell me what it is? Is it some kind of "phone-home" stuff microsoft have put in XP?
with regards,

What I always didi in that instance was deny at first sight then watch your system closely for any troubles that may be attributed as a result of your action.It may be as simple as Antivirus updates engine or windows update engine trying to check the database...
