    The address are 10.0.0.138 which is a gateway address on the router and the
    224.0.0.2 where is unknown to us internet address. This is happening also
    with application that ARE NOT internet applications! In particular, a
    specific program that had never requested internet access in xp pro now in
    vista requires access. This mysterious activity found by zone alarm
    firewall.

    So we have the same applications with different system with different
    behavior. I think that 99% system is responsible for this. Of course there
    is antivirus installed, updated etc. The application's files are identical
    with the original files, so cannot be virus activity.

    Please give me more information about this issue.

    Kind regards

    Did you know that you can research the IP
    at www.domaintools.com? Enter it into the
    whois search for a full listing.

    Your 224.0.0.2 returns iana.org. Maybe the
    software is just calling there for DNS service.
    In that case, the question would be what
    domain it's looking up. You might be able to
    figure it out by lony letting Zone Alarm let the
    program go out on a case by case basis. But you
    may not have a chance to say no to the final
    destination if you've said yes to iana.org.

    Unfortunately, a great deal of software is
    spyware these days, insofar as it goes online
    without asking and without telling you the
    purpose. I've seen Norton System Works try
    to go out during install. Then when the cable
    plug was pulled it just hung for awhile, never
    once showing a message saying that it was
    attempting online access! ... Opera calls home
    on first run without telling you... etc.

    I think those are ICMP Router Discovery packets.
    To make it easier to understand is like Vista yelling where the hack is
    a router that can route my traffic (that is done via 224.0.0.2
    (all-routers)) if there is a router supporting ICMP Router Discovery it
    yells back here iam please use me to reach the internet (i wanna be
    your default route).

    For more technical info you should check RFC or Microsoft site:
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/pr...rv/reskit/intwork/inae_ips_oliq.mspx?mfr=true
    http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc1256.html

    You can tell Vista stop yelling by registry modification
    PerformRouterDiscovery) for details see:

    The problem is that applications that are developed by me, are trying to
    access the internet. These programs don't even a letter about network
    performance. I tried this, a copy an entire application from the vista
    terminal to a terminal with win xp pro (with zone alarm), the copy doesn't
    attempt to access the internet.

    Take care
