My system is Windows XP Home SP3. I recently opened an account with Paypal and today I received an email from them offering the free program called Iconix which apparently checks that emails from specific sites are genuine and not spam.

As I was recently caught up in the hacked Hotmail account attack where tens of thousands of accounts were hacked, mine among them I thought this Iconix program would be a good thing, so I downloaded and installed it. After installation I noticed that two new items had been added to my processes list in Task Manager. The first process is called "IconicService.exe" I would assume that this one would need to run at start-up in order for Iconix to do its job. The second process and the one I am interested in is called "OEdmn_5.exe" and is the one I would like some advice on if possible.

I like to keep my start up list using only the programs which are needed at start up and with the Autoruns program and the suberb start up list at these forums I have been able to do this. I got file not found answers when I did a search on the start up list prior to writing this post. There is also not much information on it either after doing a Google search. Does anyone know if this "OEdmn_5.exe" should be allowed to run on my PC at start up, or is it safe to untick it in Autoruns and leave it working in the background?.

OEdmn_5.exe is required to run Iconic at Startup.
