Have no clue what could have caused WaasMedic_Agent.exe to appear on your desktop.

However, there have been recent postings in regards to Eset firewall not working properly in Interactive mode. I assume you were in Interactive  mode when the Eset firewall alert appeared?

I would just delete the desktop entry and post back if this activity occurs for another process you create an Eset firewall rule while in Interactive mode.

Hello,

Can someone please let me know the SHA256 Checksum of the file 

C:\Windows\System32\WaasMedic_Agent.exe

Maybe the one I have in the desktop is the good one and the the other is corrupted?
 

A) i am paranoid

B) The WaasMedic_Agent.exe  is an important file, has something to do with WU

Thank you

You can upload your version to virustotal for more checking by AV engines to be more sure

It seems that this WaasMedic is related to Windows Update.
