So I have this start up item on my computer called "UniqueKeygenerator.exe" Im not sure what it is or what
it does. I've googled it but nothing comes up.

I've done a full system scan on my pc and nothing came up. I also ran a full spyware/malware scan and nothing.

Is this .exe normal? Any help would be appreciated. Thx

BTW Running Windows 7 (64 bit)

If you can locate this file on your hard drive, you can upload it to http://www.virustotal.com to see the results.

If it looks like I know what I'm doing, there's a pretty good chance the only reason for that is because
I once asked someone to run chkdsk /r and a BC Advisor smacked me in the back of the head.

It's a program used for illegal purposes...I would suspect it came with a torrent download.

That is not strictly true.

I located the file and uploaded it to Virustotal.com and the the results where. (Detection Ratio 0/43) So I guess it's not a virus.
