AVG just caught MATSVC.EXE on my work computer and recommended putting in vault.
Google search shows that it is mostly a Microsoft Fixit program and is harmless.
My question is should I allow it to run, leave in vault or delete it.
Thanks for any info

It looks like a legit file.

Open Windows Explorer.
Upload following files to http://www.virustotal.com/ for security check:
- C:\Program Files\Microsoft Fix it Center\Matsvc.exe
IMPORTANT! If the file is listed as already analyzed, click on Reanalyse file now button.
Post scan results.
