conime.exe RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am curious because i found this conime.exe file in the startup list. I disabled it to run at startup from the registry based on the assumption that this is used for foreign languages in windows. However, there are conflicting opinions on whether or not this is some kind of nasty or not. i ran avg, malwarebytes,  scanned it with mcafee, and scanned it with kaspersky. None of these things say that is harmful. When I checked the event viewer for the day that it was created there are several login attempts from an unknown user using explicit credentials. My computer is running kind of slow, but I do have vista and only a gig of ram. Also my mother-inlaw has a bunch of games and shortcuts on the desktop and is constantly downloading big fish games. Should I be worried, or is this a harmless file?
