I am moving this post here because this program may be malware.

I have Windows XP Media Center Edition ver. 2002 Service Pack 3.

I can't remember how this got installed on my computer, but when I go to programs I have something called Driver Performer installed. The icon is a gear with a lightning bolt. I did open it once and scan my drivers. I think it found six things it wanted to update. It acted like a windows program, but I did not trust it. I looked at the properties and it shows it was created about five days ago. I clicked on the uninstall application and received this message: "C:\Program Files\Driver-Soft\Driver Performer\unis000.dat"file is corrupted.Cannot uninstall.

I did some research online and I cannot determine what kind of threat this program may be. It may also be important to know that I did have the fake Windows XP virus scan. I posted on bleeping computer and resolved that problem. The only thing that I know of that is NOT working is Windows Silverlight. When I go to Netflix and try to stream a movie I get error N8007. I have been to the Window forum for Silverlight to try and resolve this issue. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and still it does not work. I have another computer that has Silverlight and I can stream Netflix without any problems. This issue may not be related but I thought I should mention it.

Thank you for your time.
