Hi,
      I was looking for a particular file and came across this one :EMBEDEDSTUB_NEW2.  Its an application and I have done nothing with as I don't remember ever downloading it.  Can anyone tell me about it, what it is, etc?  If it's a virus or malware what's the best way of getting rid of it?  I have run Avira and will run Malwarebytes. If anything else should be done please let me know. Am running Windows 7 Intel Core i7, 16g memory.
 
Thanks,
Chuck

Hi pzlehr and welcome to BC.
 

If it's a virus or malware what's the best way of getting rid of it?

It's classed as Adware.

http://www.herdprotect.com/embededstub_new.exe-50fb6bb89cd7675dd1220222e9a83802878ec2e4.aspx

We can use dedicated Adware removal tools to search and remove.
Also this does tend to run from your temp files, so we can clean those as well.
This should do the trick:

Step 1
Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.
Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.
  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will begin to scan your computer.
  • After the scan has finished...
  • Click on the Clean button.
  • Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
  • Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.
  • After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[S0].txt) will open automatically.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of that logfile will also be saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder.
Step 2
Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop
  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista/Win7, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.
Edit:
Sorry we double posted.
