First of all, I didn't know where to post this, so please move it if it's the wrong forum.
I have a problem with Zone Alarm.
Since a month or so, Zone Alarm dettects the following each time I try to use Firefox or Iexplore.

What happened?
ZoneAlarm blocked an outbound communication to a Domain Name Server. The function of a Domain Name Server (DNS) is to convert a domain's IP address, such as, into a recognizable name, such as www.cnn.com.

And when I try to connect, sometimes I can't at the first try, and I have to wait a minute or so...
Also sometimes it detects the same but with svchost.exe, to the same ip.

I use Norton Antivirus, and also I've used the Panda Antivirus Online. And Spy&Bot and Ad-Aware, but the don't dettect anything.

I don't know what to do, and if I should be worry about it, so I beg your help ;)


Edited: I forgot to say that it's an outgoing conection.
