Old time lurker and odd poster here with a general question. I think this might fall more in the nature of understanding system processes.
I've activated comodo HIPS on paranoid mode to firstly see if i have an intrusion via my router but moreover to understand processes that occur.
As on recent I have had alot of requests to edit my 'root' registrys and other files from my user application firefox and even my general applications like Searchui.exe.
Is registry editing a normal part of application launch (i.e editing 'system preferences' reg key after launching searchui) or should i be suspicious.
From my understanding, automated registry edits without any form of installation, update or manual removal is an area of suspicion.
Would appreciate the feedback.
