Program modified - trying to access the network

  Newuser2883 21:37 08 Sep 03

For the last few weeks, every time I start my laptop I get the above message, followed by:
Program Name: c:\WINDOWS\System32|ntoskrnl.exe
Description: NT Kernel & System (Microsoft Windows Operating System).

My firewall highlights this problem, and I just prevent it entering my system for one occasion.
Is this program necessary or can I prevent it permanently?
I am using WINXP Home.
Thank you

As far as I'm aware it doesn't need access.

I've had it on always blocked on my system.

BUT why has it been modified, have you recently installed any thing, have you run a virus/trojan check lately ?
