Hello jaketrophotometry

This is a .dll file not an .exe. dll=Dynamic Link Library, a library of executable functions or data that can be called when needed by a larger program that is running in the computer. I'm not finding any info on it which usually means its not legit. Anytime you come across a suspicious file you can always do this:

Go to jotti.org
Browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit [upload] it for scanning/analysis.

or

Go to virustotal.com
Browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit [upload] it for scanning/analysis.
