ZoneLabs-absolutely safe
I updated my ZoneAlarm firewall to the Security Suite yesterday. ScanningProcess.exe has been running in the background since then, hogging up CPU and virtual memory. It starts running on startup, even though I have not run any scans.. Frustrated
Part of ZoneAlarm Sec. Seems to be a network traffic scanner. Not harmfull but uses lot of resources (mainly mem an some part of proccessor time). z7zZ
This is not a Zone Alarm issue; it is some type of destructive slow down. Use Ctrl Alt Delete and you'll see it's taking all necessary memory to run windows.  See also: Link Webmaster T.
A total resource hog AV scanning engine from ZA7. Go Norton, way better! BABBA
I have 4 of these processes running after installing zonealarm, using over 100mb system resources ACF

It's a part of ZoneAlarm, apparently, and also comes with the new Rogers Online Protection anonymous
I don't have ZA installed on my computer but this file is running on my computer.
The only copy I found was in Virgin PC Guard the free antivirus supplied by Virgin, I think they should tell us what to expect to be running so we dont have to try and find what these things are. Baz
Part of ZoneAlarm Suite. Provides a window showing progress of updates of AV and Malware Portions. Also may be a part of AVG's Antivirus Scanner Update process. Jeroldo

Also part of Rogers Anti-spyware Software Felix
I don't have it installed on my pc and it shows as the descripton of my service provider's anti-virus. slave of The Slave of The Light.
It is part of ZoneAlarm Security Suite and I'm sure it is "harmless", meaning that it is not intentionally harmful, but it uses so much memory that the cost in performance is significant. Jason K
part of Escan Internet Security Suite  See also: Link G Faloon
seems part of rps = rogers security - a memoru and cpu hog Patte
I takes up a great deal of memory when it runs
Is also part of virgin media broadband package or any other company using kapersky to power their AV. Annoying but hamless.  See also: Link AndyH
I think also it belongs to PCGuard. I can`t stop it from running either. Andrew
This executable is lodged in a zonealarm folder, and seems to run very often. Can't find an option in ZA to disable, schedule, or otherwise affect it's excruciating, painful, scan of death. Whoops, just found a link that claims it's a trojan named beagle.dz trojan. See link provided below.  See also: Link Fred Middleton
Seems to eat machine resources alive at times. Cruzr Guy
It is part of Rogers Online Protection; no need to worry. It does take up a lot of memory at some times. Brad
