A few weeks ago, I got a ZA alarm saying that,
"av

.exe"
wanted to access the Internet. As I had done nothing to trigger an Internet access request, and being unable to identify what program was requesting access, I denied access and checked "remember". I subsequently did multiple virus and spyware scans, and came up clean. Since then, I periodically get ZA alerts to similar, but differently named programs, and I always deny and remember, with no ramifications, as far as I can tell. ZA Program Control now lists 11 of these strange entries. I would list them, but it's a real hassle finding the the characters, then copying and pasting them from charmap.

Does anyone have any idea what they may be?
