    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?

    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.
