    Default ", is trying to access taskmgr" Any ideas?

    Hi, recently closed Steam then around 10 seconds later I get this

    ", is trying to access C/Windows(etc)/taskmgr" That isn't the exact path I was given but it was certainly trying to access task manager.
    I have an image of the Program Control section here:

    Basically there's no information about the process, just that it's 0kb.
    Wondering if anyone knows what this could be? I have run full checks with AVG and Spybot, both up to date but have found nothing.
    Thanks for your time.
    EDIT: Also, forgot to mention that as soon as I denied it access, Explorer.exe (Desktop icons/menus etc) basically shut itself down and the computer went into sleep mode.



    Operating System:
    Windows Vista Home Premium
    Software Version:
    7.1 (Vista)
    Product Name:
    ZoneAlarm Antivirus

    what is the exact program and is there a site you downloaded from or was the program part of the computer itself
    sounds like that the program maybe a malware or a trojan downloader
    one way to check is to use the online scanner at http://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/default.htm
    it maybe able to find more than what any other scanner can pick up hope this helps
    thanks robdog

    It is not associated with a program or anything as shown in the image I provided.
    Since then I have reformatted my computer, however today I check my firewall after an over heat and it says "yy" with double dots on top of each Y is trying to access advapi32.dll.
    The only programs I have installed after reformat are:
    AVG
    Zonealarm
    Spybot
    Your uninstaller
    Steam

    Cheese,

    I have the same problem, even after reformat.

    I have a feeling it has something to do with ZA-ISS and Vista.

    Because this never happened to me when I used XP.

    Vista is much more security buff (as can be seen how it prompts you CONSTANTLY whenever you want to run anything important).

    Interested to see whether you found a fix?
