    Hi All,

    I leave SysInternals Process Viewer running all the time in place of Task Manager. Since yesterday, I've been seeing dllhost.exe continually starting, stopping, starting, etc. When I check the property page, I see it's attempting to run "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\DllHost.exe /Processid:{E2B3C97F-6AE1-41AC-817A-F6F92166D7DD}" which comes back to:

    Code:
    Virtual Factory for Windows Firewall Cpl
    {A4B07E49-6567-4FB8-8D39-01920E3B2357}
    @%SystemRoot%\System32\FirewallControlPanel.dll,-1
    Is this legit? I did un/reinstall ZoneAlarm yesterday but hadn't noticed this dllhost bouncing thing before. IIRC, I have my Win7 firewall services turned off...

    I had my Windows Firewall service disabled since I'm using ZA. Set it to manual start and it doesn't start, but dllhost is no longer messing with it. All is good now.
