Winxp SP2 with Zone Alarm pro as firewall..

Now zone alarm pro shows the "Generic host process for win32 services" always active and sending and receiving some thing to some one...may be to Microsoft... don't know...
My question is that why the "Generic host process for win32 services" always sends and receives some sort of data to some unknown destination...
Now i know that I can't disable “Generic host process for win32 services" because this way i lose my connection to my ISP...
So what does the “Generic host process for win32 services” sends and receive and to whom it sends it...
Even if windows Automatic Update is disabled it still is always active...
Please some one help ////
is the "Generic host process for win32 services" sending my personal info to some one else...

:inlove: this is a big B.S stupid problem for me...
:cool: And because of this i am not using the stupid winxp...
Thanx...

:flowers: :) :) :thumbsup: :) :trumpet: :P

Generic host processes for win 32 are, well . . . generic. It services several processes necessary to connect to the internet, and if you block it, you won't be doing much. DNS lookups and http are some of those services.
