I have scanned my pc with several programs and have not been able to find any malware or any thing else but my pc keeps having an application called Macrovision Software Manager Agent wanting to connection to IP 80 and send information out but my firewall has been catching it and stopping it from making a connectin. Is this something I should worry about? If it is I hope someone can give me some info as to what to do.

Do you have a Dell or just recently installed any programs?
This is not malware
