    This has been happening for months on my PC :-

    Evey once in a while - every couple of weeks or so, I have a major FIGHT
    with Colour Management, ...this includes fighting with Monitor colour
    profile creators Adobe Gamma and Praxisoft WIZYWIG, (both of which I
    constantly keep an eye on to make sure that after I've fiddled with them -
    they haven't planted themselves yet again in my Startup folder - I prefer
    to manually set my own *.ICM !).

    My route to checking which monitor profile file is currently set is:-

    Right-click an empty area of my desktop | Properties | Settings | Advanced |
    Colour Management

    After booting up, (a fresh NORMAL startup i.e. not a hibernation startup),
    and part way into the above sequence - "Advanced" I think it is - I get a ZA
    firewall alert - "Spooler Subsystem is attempting to access the internet"
    This ZA alert doesn't appear again in the same Windows Session when I repeat
    the above sequence - and that's after dismissing that ZA alert WITHOUT
    checking the box "Always use this action for this type of alert" i.e. I just
    click "Deny"

    Any ideas ?

    ....I have a suspicion that it's connected with Epson printer drivers, of
    which I have two installed - for two Epson Printers. Fiddling with the
    printer driver settings often makes ZA chuck up the above alert ! ...I
    think I read somewhere that the Epson printer ddrivers are not really trying
    to get out onto the interernet but, it's all to do with networking printers
