    Default zonealarm security alert

    For about a week now - when I boot up my computer my zonealarm security alet pops up with the following:

    Service Executable is trying to access the internet.

    Identification: Not available in zonealarm
    Application: Ixceserv.exe
    Destination IP 69.60. etc

    This program has previously asked for internet access.


    Does anyone know what this program is? I click deny, and my pc runs just fine. I don't want to "always Deny" in case I may need if for some reason.

    Thanks so much
    Alyce

    PS will send attachment with message

    can't find anything via a google or msn search. Could you locate the file by doing a search on your computer and getting back to us and letting us know where the file is stored on your PC? Also, your screenshot doesn't show up, mind attaching that again please.

    Default Search Complete

    I did a search and there is nothing by the name of Service Executable
    I don't have a clue why the screen capture won't take, so I'll try it again

    I agree with Partie ™ no such legitimate file by name that exists. Block/Deny it and have Zone Alarm remember it.

    These can always be undone if need be.

    alsprink,

    I didn't want you to search for "Service Executable" I wanted you to search your computer for the
    ixceserv.exe program OR the lxceserv.exe notice the difference in the 2.

    the first one is i (eye) and the second one starts with l (lower case 'el').

    Virus files like to do that since windows uses a font type that doesn't distinguish well between a lowercase l or a capital I.

    I still wouldn't mind finding out what this file is since nobody seems to have heard about it. I really don't want you to just Block it from the internet and feel safe, especially if it's a virus taking over your files right this second and you not knowing about it.

    Default Alsprink Zone Alarm security

    Dble click your Zone alarm Icon to open it up, Up in the right corner Is a blue check mark next to help, Open up help, Go to the search tab Type in Security Executable you will get several choices click on display see if you can locate the setting for your problem, I wouldn't advise just restting stuff willy nilly, If you haven't messed around with the default settings I would suggest , you uninstall then download a new clean installation.

    Upon doing some research on my own, this file is legitimate if you have a Lexmark printer. I have a Lexmark 3 in 1, and discovered this was part of the driver package. It's safe to allow it.
