Hey all,
Im new around here, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me if history.exe is a virus?
Will sometimes randomly pop up (see screenshot) https://ssl-proxy-updated.herokuapp.com/e47496805e05dbc5a90f043d33edf047a2283534/687474703a2f2f7777772e6e617468616e6c756b65776f6e672e636f6d2f686973746f72792e6a7067/
I was using Norton 09 but it would only scan 8000 files before it said scan complete and that no viruses where found. I unistalled Norton as it was not working properly [not scanning whole computer] I tried a copy of TrendMicro and it also said no virus found. Now trying AVG free. Even though no virus is found, I find it confusing that this program will sometimes open
Any advice would be great

Update: Same thing happens when running host.exe

Try submitting the file C:\windows\system32\history.exe for a Jotti scan, here:
