Hey I logged onto my pc today and noticed that installagent.exe and installagentbroker.exe were running of which I've never seen before which I wanted to know what these did, I then ran AVG as I do from time to time and it never finds anything but today it found 32 Notepad.trojans I just wanted to know if this is a mistake on their part, I ran malware bytes which found nothing then ADWcleaner which found nothing, I can post some FRST logs as well.
