Zone Alarm to let me know if Office applications are trying to access
the internet (permission "ask"). Recently I have noticed that something
(either Office or Zone Alarm) is changing the default to allow Word,

A.) Should I be worried?
B.) What's going on?
C.) Anyone else seen this?

Your considerations appreciated.

I'm running Office2K and ZA Pro on an XP Pro machine, and the only
Office program which is showing ANY Internet access activated is
