8979 Strange Program

Looking at my Programs and Features List and Revo Uninstaller, I found a program called 8979. No idea what it is. Does anyone know what it is and what it might do. Thanks.

I know of nothing I installed at the time Revo says it was installed and by that name. There is nothing in the program files that has that name. I keep a close eye on what I do install.
