QmvPmtXRX.exe startup message

I have ZoneAlarm running on my computer. When I start up my computer, it registers that QmvPmtXRX.exe is trying to access the Internet. It tries numerous times and then seems to stop after a couple of hours. I have no idea what this is and can't seem to find it on my computer or the Internet. Do you have any advice?
It could be a Trojan program. I would definitely run some antispyware tools such as SpyBot and PestPatrol to see if they can find and clean it. Also, check your Windows startup folder and any registry keys referencing this program under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Run in regedit.
