    mpsigstub.exe Cabinet file

    At least once a day I receive a ZoneAlarm warning that reads:
    Self-Extracting Cabinet is trying to launch
    C:0BDD12A79A2DBB1603201A20mpsigstub.exe
    I deny letting this file open. Later the warning message appears again but with a different string of numbers. The file name is the same. What is this file mpsigstub.exe? If it is safe, how can I allow it next time if the number string changes daily? ZoneAlarm will see this as a new file and repeat the warning, which must be acknowledged. (I read somewhere that this might be signatures for Windows Defender.)

    It is indeed the signature file for Windows Defender, so it;s safe to allow it. But I don't have ZoneAlarm, so unfortunately I cannot tell you how to let this file through once and for all.

    The next time the warning appears click on Allow. If there is a box that says Always aLlow check on that as well an then click OK.
    Thanks John
