how can i detect trojan activity?
I was wondering if any of you have a tool or program that can detect when a file or program acceses another program that has internet privleges ,and can detect other suspicious activities

you mean like a firewall?
\"Look, Doc, I spent last Tuesday watching fibers on my carpet. And the whole time I was watching my carpet, I was worrying that I, I might vomit. And the whole time, I was thinking, \"I\'m a grown man. I should know what goes on my head.\" And the more I thought about it... the more I realized that I should just blow my brains out and end it all. But then I thought, well, if I thought more about blowing my brains out... I start worrying about what that was going to do to my goddamn carpet. Okay, so, ah-he, that was a GOOD day, Doc. And, and I just want you to give me some pills and let me get on with my life. \" -Roy Waller

Your profile says you're using windows, so here goes:
You should get a decent firewall (like what slick8790 says) with a good report-generating feature. Try to search here at antionline and you'll see some useful info about what might be of service to your needs.
Also try to to get TaskInfo at http://www.iarsn.com/taskinfo.html . I find it very useful and informative, a lot better than the usual task manager. It will tell you what's hogging the resources and where those files are located (correct me if im wrong, but win taskmanager wont tell you the path of the process file).
If you're on a network, and you're on the server which shares internet on LAN, try using LanScan Network Monitor at http://www.lanscan.com . It will tell you which computer on the network is hogging the bandwidth and on what site they are connected to. I find lanscan very useful in concern to administering correct bandwidth usage on a network.
hope this helped.

is there any (small sized ) anti trojan anti hacker firewall that you know of that can work with zone alarm

Though this isn't exactly what you're looking for, but I find it handy.
It alerts you when a program makes a change to the registery, as many trojans will do and gives you the choice to delete the string, or keep it.
You can set it to run at start up, and its free

Take a look at:
I usually relate connectivity to firewalls like the rest of the guys have suggested........this one looks at background systems that start running?

You might try ZoneLog Analyser 1.19
I think that is the link?............it works alongside Zonealarm and provides detailed reporting.

nihil: yeah i used ZoneLog Analyzer before and with some reason, i stopped using it (i forgot what was it). i better install it again and check it out again. thanks for refreshing my mem. now, im using tiny PF on my new server. seems better than ZA, but thats just me.
