Windows ME SSDPSRV.EXE wants to connect to the internet , asccording to ZoneAlarm .
A search shows 3 .exe files in C\Windows\

Please, becuase Windows Help has nothing about these , can someone please explain just what SDPSRV.EXE is all about ?

(a short version AND a long/detailed version , the more detailed the better)
