Yes, that was my thread at the MBAM forum.
It was REALLY late, so I forgot to post back here about it.
One must admit -- that's a REALLY scary executable file name, especially with the "XP" in it (on a Win7 system). Turns out it's a program originally written for XP and that sometimes needs to run in compatibility mode.
It's not a Windows file but relates specifically to the "driver" for the media card reader, so that's why I wasn't seeing it on my other Win7 machine (a laptop without a media card reader).
I agree re: the name being scary. I try to ignore such things as much as possible in my machine.....out of sight is out of mind....LOL.
