I've read a lot about these Emie files (there are 3 of them) being part of virus. I don't think they are, I have had them ever since I upgraded to Iexplorer 11 running on Win7 64 bit. I did read one post on a MS forum saying these files were a legitimate part of the above said upgrade scenario, but "only that one post". There are numerous other posts elsewhere saying it's malware.
Well I ran the cleaners etc and could not keep these files from coming back. You can delete them but they reappear each time you run Iexplorer.
I have good data backups, so I just did a full factory recovery. I enacted the window firewall, then uninstalled all the factory bloatware etc. Then did a the windows updates gig and then did a Win Os Sys Image at that point.
Over a period of 3 days the Emie files did not appear. In the meantime I installed Norton 360 (since I still have 80 days left on it. I'm thinking of going with Emsisoft Security at that time. Then I reinstalled my email app and my password app (both of which I've been using for years).
Well I got another windows update notice yesterday and I downloaded it. Part of it was the upgrade to Iexplorer 11 . Immediately afterwards the Emie files came back. I think these files are definitely part of Iexplorer 11 running on win 7. I'm guessing the name Emie.... is for Enhanced Mode Internet Explorer.
Anyhow just thought I share this since I've seen so many posts on the net about these files being part of virus. Albeit a virus could use them (I guess) just like other files have been hijacked, but in my case it appears they are MS files
