A couple of times this week Zone Alarm popped up say a program wanted to access the internet. Each time I denied access. The program's name was
1df3e1d4-7f22-478d-b77f-519afe75f5f9(dot)exe
I did a search of my computer for the program and it returned one entry that wasn't a total match, the last 12 characters were different and it had a (dot)pf extension. Googleing the program name returned nothing.
Computer is a WinXP. I ran MBAM and Avast scans and they found nothing.
Not allowing hasn't effected my machine and I don't plan to allow it to get to the internet until I know what it is. So, any ideas?

FNO
