Windows 7 64 bit. I just got a security alert about a new auto start registry entry. I did block it. Version 3.

Any ideas ?

2:55:44 PM AWASU.EXE Prompt for system object modification Auto Start Entries HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-2324545448-609239014-2225279138-1001\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Awasu will put an auto-run entry there if you configure it to start when you log onto Windows (Tools, Options, General page, Run automatically when Windows starts).

I realize that and it is not set to run on boot. I just wonder if something tried to get in from IE 9. Since I blocked it, there is no way to track it down. Everything in that registry location is ok to be run. I guess it is something that never will be known.
