Drivers are special computer instructions that allows Windows to access system resources, such as, memory, network interfaces, hard disks, and other devices. Since drivers run as part of Windows itself, they have unrestricted access to the system. ZoneAlarm protects against unauthorized modification of the settings of an existing driver or service because of potential malicious behavior.
