Whenever you find a suspicious file you can upload it to VirusTotal for scanning.

I dont consider that reliable. There is a reason so many keygens are available for that software.......ditch it.

Use virustotal to double-check, then check again using this:

AVZ is an anti-viral toolkit for system analysis and recovery. AVZ enables you to automatically or manually find and remove the following types of malware:

- Spyware and AdWare programs and modules.
- Rootkits and other software tools intended to conceal running processes, files or system data from the operating system.
- Network and E-mail Worms.
- Various Trojan applications including password stealers, malware downloaders, Trojan-Spies, and Backdoors (tools allowing remote control of a computer).
- Trojan Dialers.
- Keyloggers and other means of tracking userís activity.

AVZ Antiviral Toolkit is a direct analogue of such programs as Trojan Hunter or Lavasoft Ad-Aware. The prevailing aim of the program is to detect and remove AdWare, SpyWare and Trojan applications. It is worth mentioning that AdWare or SpyWare programs are not viruses or Trojan horses by definition. They perform tracking or download info or codes to the infected computer for marketing purposes. That means that the information transferred does not contain any crucial data like passwords, credit card numbers, etc; as a rule, the downloaded data are ads or updates.

So its safe and useful to have? You would think they would call it another name, instead of keylogger. Thank you for the info much appreciated Jacee.

I have Kaspersky 2013 and that file in that location too. It seems to be part of the antivirus signature database or something like that, but totally safe (confirmed with VirusTotal too). I also have opened it with notepad and doesn't seems anything like an executable file of any kind, so most likely it's safe.
