I tried doing a Google search and searching the Bleeping Computer forums, but I couldn't really find what I wanted to know. I did a virus scan online with Panda and the file C:\Windows\NirCmd.exe came up as a possible hacking tool. I would appreciate it if someone could tell me what this program is and whether or not it is safe to delete it without messing up anything on my PC (I am running Windows XP SP2). Thanks.

Are you running a utility called NirCmd?

No, I've never used it at all. Would I need it to run other programs? Could it have been downloaded along with another application?

The NirCmd.exe noted as a problem in the Panda scan, must be a tool or file from tools that you have previously run for security purposes.

Is not a issue but okay to delete.
