    I have win XP pro SP1 and recently updated it to sp2. The problem I
    have came and is still with the original installation CD. I have zone
    alarm installed and whenever I use internet explorer I can only browse
    if I let windows explorer access the internet too. These are two of
    the destination IP addresses that zone alarm throws up: 210.210.109.1
    and 212.58.226.40 which are RIPE Network Coordination Centre and Asia
    Pacific Network Information Centre. I have checked for viruses, worms
    etc have Avast antivirus installed, tried AVG too. Have Prevx
    installed, spybot, ad-aware. I use the windows Xp firewall and I have
    a hardware firewall via a router. I did have a possible worm infextion
    but the antivirus deleted that. Two questions I would like help with
    1) Is it an infection and there a solution 2) Why would RIPE and APNIC
    want access to my windows explorer?

    Thanks in advance
