    Default Is CNMSM5Y.EXE malware?

    I have ZAP ver. 7.0.462.000. I have a Canon Pixma iP1500 printer. Both have worked fine together for months. This morning, when I sent a simple printing task (a Notepad file) to the printer, a ZAP alert popped up that CNMSM5Y.exe was trying to access a port (I do not recall the exact message, and it has not appeared again). Not wanting to take a chance, I clicked on "Deny", and everything seems to have returned to normal. I think that CNMSM5Y.exe is a Canon printer driver, but I would be delighted if someone here could confirm that. Thank you. Francis.

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro

    Thank you. When I do a search (Start>Search>All Files and Folders) it shows up in these three places:
    c:\windows\prefetchc:\windows\system32\spool\drive rs\w32x86\3c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\w32x8 6\canonip150039e6
    Does that look okay? Francis
