Hi,

Since having problems due to a vundo.je infection I was checking locations of system files that had internet access on zonealarm and setting it to ask again next time. I'm don't know much about it so can anyone tell me why so many system files access the internet and does this represent a threat? I can't remember when all these things got permission to access, maybe when the pc was first set up.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe had internet access

With a search I also found another file is this normal?

C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch\RUNDLL32.EXE-451FC2C0.pf

cheers Kev

Rundll32 is a program used by windows to run files, dll's for instance. What we would need to know is what file rundll32 is using when or if it accesses the internet anymore. Then we can tell you if the file that Rundll32 is using has a malicious purpose.
