Does anyone know what MDM32.EXE is and why its trying to access the internet?
It's located withing the Windows folder and I'm concerned its a malicious
file. Is it legitimate and I should let it access the Internet or have it
deleted?

I'm using WindowsXP Home OS with Zone Alarm firewall.

When you first get infected , W32/Agobot-AQ copies itself to the Windows
system folder with
the filename mdm32.exe.

Why - you too lazy to Google? I entered it as a search term and received
over 1,000 hits. It's obvious you can't be arsed to do any work yourself and
just want spoonfeeding.

Sorry, buddy, it ain't gonna happen...
