I have a friend that I'm trying to help with a problem. She is running AOL security (not sure what that is exactly, as I don't and won't do AOL)...
Anyway, the here is what she's told me about it:

---begin quote

I keep getting asked this question about

c:\PROGRAM FILES\?ECURITY\??ERINIT.EXE

Path: c:\PROGRAM FILES\?ECURITY\??ERINIT.EXE

What is this? Why does it keep wanting to access my computer. Whether I say 'Allow' or 'Block' it doesnt matter. It still pops up again.

---end quote

I had her run HiJackThis, and here is her log:
