Windows 7: weird .exe in c:\windows detected

19 Oct 2012   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Versio 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601
weird .exe in c:\windows detected

i had a fresh install of windows 7 ultimate 32-bit sp1 (latest updates installed) and 2 times(each time at bootup) i got a threat identity message from avg antivirus 2013... each time it's a weird named .exe in the c:\windows folder. The names are:
IS-D2LTC.exe and IS-6AC8S.exe (see attached)

ps. while making the screenshot, i just noticed that ntfs-link was identified as infected also.... maybe it is this program that's causing the weird .exe? just want to confirm though... is it a false alarm or should i unistall ntfs-link?

I don't know what it is and can't find much on it. To be safe you could run this.
