Windows 7: windowstime.exe infected?

windowstime.exe infected?

A friend got a message from Avast that windowstime.exe was infected (Win32ropper-NAE [Drp) and it moved it to the vault. I've did some checking on the machine and it seems clean. Anyone ever heard of that particular file getting infected? Is it needed by windows? If so, how would you go about replacing it with a clean version? Thanks for any info.

Check here. Looks like an infector got infected. (...or something.)

I think I would run MalwareBytes, then be sure that your registry is not screwed.

Thanks for the replies. Malwarebytes was fine, but before I flush the virus vault and delete it I was just wondering if it was something windows needed.

Thanks, I couldn't really tell from the link whether it was something windows needed. I'll assume not and that it was just something malicious.

Thanks for offering. I did find some tarma thing and adobe air, but they were pup's so I didn't delete them. Not sure if I was supposed to.
