Should I allow a allow a program entry by the name of "Generic Host process for Win32 services" under C:\Windows\System 32\svchost.exe to access the internet in Zone Alarm?

Thanks.

svchost in the location you mention is a valid Windows file. It should be allowed access as some applications that use the net will require it.
