There shouldn't be any executable files in this folder . Unless you have decided to store this file here yourself I see no way that it can be legit .

Thanks for replying. No, I hadn't save anything to setup.

I removed it this morning as I was worried about it.

However, having removed it, I am now getting a message when I boot up:

"Set up encountered an error during installation.

Error Code 000D


I click on again and I get another box asking me to wat whilst set up continues.

I rebooted the system and got the same message. My PC seems to be running OK, but I wondered if I had removed something important by getting rid of the rogue installer.

What do you think?
