McAfee Firewall requesting access for ??OOLSV.EXE

Once my machine, a W2K box, boots up(sometimes it reboots for no reason), if I bring up IE, my McAfee firewall starts asking me for permission for access for program ??OOLSV.EXE. Has anyone run into problems with this program, and if so, how do I get rid of it?

Hello osccoles =)

Well looking like a faked process to me :-/
So first run these tools in safemode to delete all the things they detect !!
========================================================
AdAware ==> http://www.spychecker.com/program/adaware.html
SpyBot  ==> http://www.spychecker.com/program/spybot.html
CoolWebShredder ==> http://www.spychecker.com/program/coolwebshredder.html
Stinger ==> http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger
========================================================

And if still the same problem, then Download HijackThis v1.98.2 from here, run it and Save the LOG file:
http://tools.radiosplace.com/HijackThis.exe

Then Post that log at this site >> http://www.hijackthis.de/index.php?langselect=english
and it will automatically analyse it for u,,, Fix the entries which it labels as Nasty :)
To Fix, check the lines and click on Fix Checked !!

CAUTION: Before fixing the entries in hijackthis, make sure that they are really Nasty and can be deleted, better u first research for it on Google and then when u will confirm that they shud be deleted, Fix them. And whenever u run Hijackthis, run it from a New folder on ur desktop, so that in case of any problem, u can take advantages of its created backups of fixed items. And in case if u still face problems in dealing with it, just analyse ur log at the above site, and then scroll down where u will see a Save Analyse button, hit it and it will save ur Log Analysation, then copy the link of that page and paste it here, and we will check it for u :)

!! GOOD LUCK !!

I can't get to safemode.  Whenever I try, I get an error in ntoskrnl.exe, blue screen, and have to power down.
