Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 - FAIL

Hi everyone.

With all the focus on "usable security" lately I've been going insane trying to figure out how to get products to actually be useful for the common user. I was relatively sure that Kaspersky had things figured out, at least reasonably well, until this happened today. I can't explain it - I don't know what this "unknown application" is (my guess is that installing VMWare 6.5 somehow triggered this) but I do know I really wish there was a terminate process (or at least a DENY button). What am I supposed to click?

Is anyone from Kaspersky reading this? Can you tell me what the hell this is and what I should be doing about it? How do I investigate the root-cause? What if this really IS a keylogger?!

I'd love some suggestions, ideas, or maybe just a clue.

Wow? It just tells you that it's suspicious and doesn't block it at all? That's stupid!
