popup when going to MS Update about Rundll32.exe

If I choose to go to the MS update site for updates rather than use the Auto Update thing, I get a Comodo pop-up that reads: C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe has tried to use iexplore.exe through OLE Automation, which can be used to hijack other applications

This seems strange to me, and has just started this out-of-the-blue…not sure what to do about it.

Any Ideas?

Thank Much,

You should allow this as it’s a normal part of the Windows OS.

Just seemed really odd to start doing that all the sudden.

Yes these things to happen sometimes,random pop ups that didn’t occur previously without a clear reason for them doing so.Such is the joy of HIPS :wink:
