We have a PC that intermittently would have a Proxy popup box appear. From past experience, it seems a program is trying to get out to the internet. Is there a utility out there that will detect which program is causing this? Thanks

it seems like this program only analyzes malware , spyware or virusses. What if it is a legit program that is just trying to check updates? will this be able to identify it?
