    The last few days, I've been getting a Behavior Shield Question from my anti-virus (Avast). I'm running Windows XP.

    The file in question isn't always exactly the same, but it seems that it has consistently been MSI*.tmp.

    I did a boot-time scan yesterday and it found something about a Global*Something*Toolbar (don't remember exactly but sent it to Avast). I Deleted that. It didn't find anything else.

    Right now it is asking to run the following:
    Program: C:\WINDOWS\Installer\MSI645.tmp
    Resource: System auto-start settings
    Target Object: \REGISTRY\MACHINE\SYST...\PendingFileRenameOperations
    Request routed via: C:\WINDOWS\System32\MsiExec.exe

    I don't know if I should Allow or Deny because I don't know what wants to do it :confused:
