Question iawiw.exe

Hi,
Does anyone have info about iawiw.exe? It appears on my open processes and gets automatically installed after rebooting. No info whatsover on any forum and on the net. Dangerous? If not what does it do?
Thanks

I see that you posted the same question of a different forum. I would recommend that you choose one forum or the other to go on with this question, as things can get messy if you take advice from both forums.

Indeed, posted in French! But since most french speakers are hardly english speakers and more of the truth for the other way around, I hardly see where the big clash could come from. I am trying to look for answers that unfortunately do not seem to flow in...
Thanks

I think you need to do a system scan and post a hijack this log to see if you really have a problem or not. It could be a virus randomly generating .exe files which helps mask it.

Personally I wouldn't let it run on my computer, chances are it could be a virus... I would suggest doing a anti-virus scan, and a anti-spyware scan... Maybe even a registry scan...

Thanks for input . I will try a deeper scan since the ones done don't seem to detect it. I manually disactivate it after every reboot as it reappears by magic...
