Today my ESET NOD32 Virus-Scanner blocked the access to:

C:\Windows\Installer\{F24F876B-7D71-4BD6-88E9-614D 3BB84228}\ARPPRODUCTICON.exe

Win32/Toolbar.Widgi

Opened by: C:\Program Files (x86)\Secunia\PSI\psia.exe

The history in the PSI Gui is empty.

Does anyone know how this can happen? Maybe an update delivered this, does anyone know this behaviour?

I'd scan it with something else to test for a false positive.

The ARPPRODUCTICON.exe file is used by InstallShield. The numerical string is the product code. If you open that folder, you may be able to see what the product is. The easiest way to get to the hidden Installer folder is to type c:\windows\installer in the start search box and press enter. Alternatively, look for it in the Registry under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uni nstall.

It might not be an update. I just ran a trace of a PSI scan and saw it was opening these files during the scan.

I would also suggest doing a more thorough scan. Please see this previous thread on a similar topic:
