    I'm confused........I've just noticed this in a folder along with
    'mrt.exe_p' on my HDD, and searched for information.
    Some information gives it as 'uknown malware' that should be removed PDQ,
    other information (including 'properties') gives it as connected with M/Soft
    Malicious S/W removal tool.
    Adware/Spybot/MS Antispyware/Avast/Spycatcher all pass by and don't identify
    it.
    There is no adverse activity that I can monitor.
    Would appreciate other's views to help me do the right thing
