    Last week while doing some clean-up I found a file called tempvt.exe, in a temp folder (not my system temp folder, but one I created for other stuff). Since I couldn't figure out what it was, I did a google search, and came up with a number of possibilities, including it being a HP scanner driver (uh-uh), or even a virus (not likely). I have a screen shot of the properties page so you can see the icon. There are no copyright messages or other text strings in the .exe file--I looked. It's about 28K in size.
    I figure it is something I downloaded but forgot about, but I have no clue as to what it is. I don't even recognize the icon, but it certainly isn't a HP icon, such as if it was a scanner driver. I scanned it with Norton, Mcafee, and AdAware but nothing malicious was detected. Anyone on here have any ideas?
    Here's the icon:

    It kind of looks like a net2phone icon. I wonder if it's that?

    Brent - that was it! Thanks!

    Now I don't know how the heck it got on my PC in the first place. I don't have a HP scanner, so I woulnd't have downloaded it deliberately. Maybe it's a loader for other stuff too. And that isn't a HP logo either. At least it's not a virus.
