I have some problems that started just this morning that I believe may be Malware related.
First I got this message...
Windows Defender Error Message

It worked just fine yesterday around 7pm EDT.
Then I got the Error...
Exception EAccessViolation in module RegFirewall.exe at 000B25A9.
Access violation at address 004B25A9 in module 'RegFirewall.exe'. Read
of address 00000000.
I just started getting these errors today.
Registry Medic and Zone Alarm Internet Security Suite started flagging some programs also. I told the two of them to block these programs.
Are these programs malware? If so how do I remove them using Zone Alarm Internet Security Suite? I've already done a Virus Sig update and a deep scan. Noting found.
Any safe tools to nuke them if they are?
If not malware then what are they? I have a bandwidth meter monitoring my internet traffic. Then I start my computer I don't normally have any traffic. Today it started downloading at startup and kept going. Had to have ZA kill all internet treaffic.
