I've never experianced the above -but I tend not to use m$ paint at home. Have you recently installed any new programs that might have updated m$ dlls? Which version of win* are you using? Is it attempting a put or a get?
If you spend more on coffee than on IT security, you will be hacked. What\'s more, you deserve to be hacked.

Are your AntiVirus DAT files up to date? When was the last time you performed a full scan of your system. I have a habit of using paint every so often, and I have never seen anything like that from Tiny Personal Firewall, Outpost, nor McAfee Firewall. The only thing I could think of is either a virus or trojan which is activated by running Paint.
