Vista's Snipping tool & Consent.exe want to connect to the Internet ?

When starting the Snipping Tool (Vista’s own screenshot utility),

consent.exe wants to connect to the Internet, and after that SnippingTool.exe
also wants to connect (see attached screenshots).

Is that normal ? Can anyone confirm that behaviour ?

I believe consent.exe is part of the UAC (User Account Control) ?

Why do they both want internet access ?

PS: Note: I have CPF set to “Custom Policy” Mode, so it also alerts for “safe” system (Microsoft) applications :wink:
