I use zonealarm and a few windows files try to access the internet. 2 that i can think of is svhost.exe and the generic host proccess one...

Anyone know which files need access ?

i think both of them are used for windows update. do they show up after trying to get windows updates? i have disabled those-not allowed access on my w2k system and never missed them.

They try to connect soon after the computer is on...but i don't think websites work without the generic one...

keep the generic host process, allow it to access but not act as a server and deny access to the other one. you should be ok after that
