I recently downloaded a free trial version of Microsoft Office. I have McAfee SiteAdvisor so I know I didn't down load a malicious imitation. But now I keep getting this pop up from my firewall. I'm afraid to allow it because I'm not sure what it is. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help or offer information. I use windows XP and firefox if that matters.

Hi tenacious d-store,


It's a legitimate program.

See this: http://www.file.net/prozess/sqlbrowser.exe.html

Generally I allow things if something I want to use doesn't function without allowing it.

Thanks for the reply. I figured as much, but the last time I accepted something that I was unfamiliar with I ended up with some nasty virus and malware (thanks again miekiemoes). I just wanted to be sure. I have continuously denied this one but it will pop up again. A side from running a little slower than usual, my comp seems fine though. Thanks again.
