eorgew.exe - what is it?

At the end of the boot sequence my firewall (Zone Alarm Pro) asks whether I should give permission for process 2616 to access the Internet. The application causing it is eorgew.exe which resides in folder windows\system32\ and is forced by a registry entry with the bizare name uansqh. So far, I've always denied it access and everything seems to run just fine. Can anyone shed light on this program and let me know if it's safe to let it run? An extensive search of the name and program throughout the Internet has come up with a blank.

Hi Allpurple,

It doesnot look like a genuine process atall.
Just check to see if it is running in the task manager.
Download this http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/procexp.shtml
and see if it would report anything about that file.

If there is no information , I would suggest you remove it.
if you cannot remove that file in normal mode, log into safe mode and delete it.

Also make sure to scan for virus and spywares in the system
