I keep getting a popup from Zone alarm(or AVG...I forget which one) that Win32 services are trying to access the internet etc. I blocked it and am not sure if I should let it thru. What is Win32 and how the heck do I let it thru if I want to?

It would be very elpful if you would know which firewall gives you this message.

that Win32 services are trying to access the internet etc.

Is this the entire message?

Depends on which program is giving you this message. Usually with Zonealarm you can block it or allow it..

The message is from Zone Alarm and says something like "Generic host for Win32 services" has been blocked. Any idea what this is?
