Does anyone out there know much about svchost.exe? Can someone load spyware on your computer and get your passwords, keylogs, or any other information through svchost.exe? When I start my computer before I even use IE I get alerts from ZoneAlarm with Generic HOst Process to act as a server 3 times and access the Internet 2 times, and then again when I actually click the IE icon.

I also get multiple ZoneAlarm alerts with no name programs (ex. Do you want " " to act as a server" or "Do you want " " to access the Internet". Is this normal?

Any help on these would be very appreciative. :-)

I also forgot to mention that in the ZoneAlarm box Generic Host Process32 also has a hand under it which I think means it is being shared. Is this normal?
