I was just doing a scan with avast when I noticed that a file in my Temp folder called ThemeTools.exe was excluded. Oddly enough, I couldn't find the executable or the folder in question. Searching only told me that its an .exe that is generated when you run the Windows Aero troubleshooter? Anyone know anything about this tool? Just curious. Thanks :)

Here's some data on it

 

https://www.reasoncoresecurity.com/themetool.exe-cbbfd3a335916ce3d1c24d94e23c4ed3bf756b76.aspx

 

as you can see there it's associated with

 

https://www.reasoncoresecurity.com/desktopwindowsmgmt.dll-37c4dc7060c66d21c8396926f3ad41e49e3bb9f4.aspx

 

which is the library that runs your desktop management.

 

It's a weird and wonderful part of Windows. :)
