I'm running Zone Alarm (standard) on my home PC (WinXP Pro) and get a
request "iic###.exe" to access the internet (the ### are a different set of
numbers each time).

I have run Adaware and Spybot S&D and even done an online scan with
TrendMicro. I've removed everything that these services have identified but
still get this message on Zone Alarm.

It appears that whatever is trying to reach the internet, is changing it's
identity after several unsuccessful attempts (the reason for the different
numbers). This may be a coincidence, but it seems to happen primarily when
Internet Explorer is opening.

We are connected to the internet by cable model and a MS wireless router to
2 other PC's. Any help or insight would be appreciated.
