Windows 7: Program I don't remember installing

Program I don't remember installing

So today I was going through the 'Program Files' folder when I noticed a folder called 'eM client'. After checking the details window and googling I found out it is an email client that is for windows. The thing is I don't remember installing it. I never email people and if I do I use web based email. I do download from 'download.com' ocassionally so if it came bundled with another software I am not sure but then again every time I install something from download.com I make sure I say no to extra stuff. I ran a malwarebytes scan on this folder and nothing was found. So my question is... should I be worried?

It is listed in control panel programs uninstall list. And it can be uninstalled.

Me too, but its hard to catch everything. A way to check if that's what happened is to look at the install date in add/remove programs and see what else was installed on that date.

I'm wondering if eM Client was part of, included with, another install. If you grouped the installs by date, what did you find out?

Will installing a 64-bit program in Program Files (x86) cripple it?
Hi, I have a question about Windows 7 Program Files folders. There is a lot of discussion on why the distinct folders are necessary, but I remain unclear about this problem. Let's say I have a portable 64-bit program whose binaries and dll's arrive in an archive like a .zip package. Will...
