Hello,

Hitman Pro 3.6.0 detected that I have regbootclean.exe on C:\windows and I am a bit nervous whether it is a threat. I have a Dell Laptop (XP windows) and TrendMicro Titanium Maximum Security installed (I own it). The Hitman pro I have is a trial version that has expired...

Please advise whether regbootclean.exe is dangerous or is part of Trendmicro as I have just read over the internet.

Thank you very much,

KK

Anytime you come across a suspicious file or you want a second opinion, submit it to one of the following online services that analyzes suspicious files:In the "File to Scan" (Upload or Submit) box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis. If you get a message saying "File has already been analyzed", click Reanalyze or Scan again.
