Hi there!

Something (a virus, trojan...something) is constantly trying to run a program on my computer. I keep getting the following alert (several at once):

An unidentified progam wants to access your computer
Don't run the program unless you know where its from or you've used it before

each time I click cancel or exit the alert box a new one appears with another setup file with different numbers. I tried getting into task manager and ending them all but new ones appear. I cleaned out my browser history and tried disconnecting my internet but they keep comming. I also ran a Zonealarm Extreme Security scan which didn't pick up on anything.

I have Windows Vista Ultimate and was using firefox at the time.

Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
