Hi,

I also run zone alarm pro with anti virus.

I noticed something on my Zone alarm screen earlier that I had not seen before.

in the programs running part of the screen next to the padlock it now says.......Generic Host Process for win 32 services. listening to port(s) UDP 1031, 1032

should I be concerned/what is it?

Hi ricky nicky and welcome to GeeksToGo!

Generic Host Process for win 32 services or svchost.exe is a program that loads Windows services that are in the form of dynamic-link libraries. It is normal for it requesting access to the internet ;)

Hope that helps.

Thanks,

:tazz:
