Ever since windows (ME) explorer was used to view a free cd from a PCWorld magazine ZoneAlarm asks me if I want Win Explorer to access the internet .

What gives - should I be concerned or what should I do to restrict this , please ?

the problem here is windows explorer and internet explorer are so interwined (good old MS for ya *cough*) that it sometimes uses both for internet.

normally i block explorer from accessing the net unless internet explorer uses it to access the net. i found that after installing office97 on to a mates pc, internet explorer works through explorer. you gotto love MS's intrusive design.
