HookDLL.DLL accessing internet

  1. My newly installed firewall keeps stopping HookDLL.DLL from sending information over the internet. The file is inside the folder that my logitech mouse software is kept in, and i think it has something to do with the media functions of my wireless keyboard and mouse. There is also a trojan horse by that name, usually found in the system32 folder. why would a wireless mouse/keyboard dll file need to send information over the internet???
    Ive attached the screenshot of the firewall log

    It might be a normal auto update routine - but there again not so I would accept that your firewall is working.

    That`s a perfectly legit Logitech process and is nothing to worry about.
