Some questions about an application called ia.exe:
This application is reported by Security Suite to have only the file name, ia.exe, and a file size of 0kb.
When I have set the trust level to restricted, and blocked access, server and send mail, I will find that all of these options have been reset to "allow" and the trust to Super.
Also, any changes I have made in Program Options, such as Authenticate program by full path name, are also reset.
When I try to set the trust level to Kill, ZoneAlarm reports "System Programs cannot be set to Kill."
Trying Properties, I get the following message: "Windows cannot find 'ia.exe'. Make sure you have typed the name correctly, and then try again..."
A system search and a registry search do not turn up ia.exe, and a virus scan by Security Suite does not find this application.
A search on the internet turned up no useful information.
Because no other application on my computer will reset ZoneAlarm, and I have not been able to link this application with any legitimate software on my machine, I am mystified by this and concerned.
Any help or hints would be appreciated.
