    Default $_3472452.TMP creating a new process

    I keep getting a Zone Alarm message intermittently saying that $_3472452.TMP is trying to create a new process.
    I used the Zone Alarm Program Control to kill the program - I have tried searching the files and registry for a reference to this file, but I can't find it.
    I got the
    info below
    in the technical info tab when the program tried to execute again.
    Is this legit, and if so, why has it only just appeared?

    I have ZoneAlarm Pro and McAfee Security Centre - both are up to date, as are the XP security patches.
    Thanks for any help.

    Files with the "$" in front are located in the WINDOWS Directory. Check the WINDOWS folder and check the WINDOWS\Temp folder.

    Did a Windows/Office update or use the Windows Defender?

    Plus clicking the item in the Program list of the ZA will show the Properties option and use that to locate the file and the vendor/version and the time/date. This will aid you in finding out what and when and why.

    Best regards.
