Windows 7: Unrecognized program in task manager

Unrecognized program in task manager

Hi I have been noticing this in the task manager "InputPersonalization.exe" I have never seen this before. I have been using the On Screen keyboard after a coffee accident and was wondering if that's just a process from that. I have done some research and it's to do with Tablet pc's well this is a desktop.

When I run Snipping Tool, wisptis.exe (Flicks) also runs as if a tablet input I had installed but not enabled can be used. I just ran Windows 7's on-screen-keyboard and no "InputPersonalization.exe" shows up in the task manager. The files is not found in system32 nor in syswow64. Its location may provide a clue as to whose program it belongs to.

I found it here "C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\ink\InputPersonalization.exe" The only tool I have been using that could explain this if not a virus would be the the onscreen keybord it try to learn your "Input" keystrokes as it has something like predictive text I'm going to run the OSK again see if it pops up after a I try and type a few new words into it.
