Overview

Cleanup is trying to open an existing process.

ZoneAlarm is asking you whether to allow this behavior. Your computer is safe.

What should I do?

If Cleanup needs to open an existing process in order to function correctly and you know what this program is, then give it permission. If it does not need to open a process, or you know that a process should not be opened, then deny it. If you are unsure, you can always deny it from opening a process and run the program again if it is required.

Why?

Cleanup is potentially malicious. This is particularly true if opening an existing process will load malicious programs and/or utilize an excessive amount of CPU time, memory, and other resources.

Details

Details

ZoneAlarm protects your system from malicious opening of existing processes.

A process is a program that is being executed. Each process can request any amount of resources from Windows as long as they are available.

Malicious programs may open existing processes on your computer to load malicious programs and utilize an excessive amount of CPU time, memory, and other resources.

Due to the potential threat, only programs which have been given explicit permission to open existing processes on your system will be allowed to do so.
