    In my ZA firewall logs I see the following event for the OS firewall:
    If I check for more info, I get the following:
    “Host Process for Windows Tasks is trying to delete a value in the registry”
    I have done a Google search, but most of the entries I see are old, 2002 – 2011.
    I can not find the “internat.exe" file on my system.
    I can not find the “SOFTWARE/MICROSOFT/WINDOWS/CURRENTVERSION/RUN internat.exe” in the registry.
    There is a legit MS file by this name, located in SYSTEM32 according to the threads I saw, but again, I do not have this file on my system.
    There are a lot of threads thru Google stating this was a bad virus/trojan a few years back, so now my question.
    How can I tell if this is legit or a virus/trojan.

    Win 7 Pro
    Current Updates applied
    I have ran the following:
    Microsoft Security Essentials
    MalwareBytes (free)
    Hitman Pro (paid)
    AVG Rescue CD
    Avira Rescue CD
    All have come up clean.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. (as you can tell, I am not that knowledgeable in this area)

    thank you.
