After downloading EASUS Partition Manager (GOTD offer for 04 June 2008), I started using it. I opened and closed the program four or five times. Each time I double clicked on the desktop icon I got a message from ZoneAlarm that a connection to the Internet was being requested. The EASUS program opened even when I blocked the outgoing connection. Requested connection:
126.96.36.199 (Global Crossing
Address: 14605 South 50th Street
Today the requested connection is for 127.0.0.1 (ports 1609 and 16300 followed by a request for 188.8.131.52DNS. I am assuming this connection is to my self - but it is a funny way to open a program. May be that in order to give me information on my hard drives the program goes through an Internet connection??
The file calling the Internet connection is "epm.exe"
