Do you use NetMeeting, if not you can stop it from starting with windows by going to Start > Run > type msconfig, under the startup tab uncheck the NetMeeting entry then reboot.

Microsoft also discontinued NetMeeting after Vista, and went to Live messenger

Here's a link on how to remove NetMeeting from your computer:NetMeeting in Windows XP

The file appears to originate with NOD32 - an anti-virus.
Have you ever had it installed? - is it still currently installed?
Have you ever had any other anti-virus installed since the last reformat? (which ones?)

...and yet there's an apparent file from NOD32 in the system?
This smacks to me of malware residuals.

Anyhow - back to the subject of the Anti-Virus....
You say that the system originally had Norton installed - when you uninstalled it, did you run the Removal tool as well?
Norton has a nasty habit of leaving residuals behind when uninstalled which prevent the proper function of any other AV afterwards, unless the removal tool is used to clean the system up (the same also applies to a much lesser extent for most other AV's). Such problems may not rear their head for months or even years.

If you're not sure, then I suggest that you run the tool now.

Download the Norton Removal Tool from here https://www-secure.symantec.com/norton-support/jsp/help-solutions.jsp?lg=english&ct=united+states&docid=20080710133834EN&product=home&version=1&pvid=f-home

Close all other programs, then run the tool. When it's complete, reboot the machine whether it asks for it or not.

I would also think about uninstalling AVG, running that removal tool, and reinstalling it.

Download the AVG Remover from here
http://www.avg.com/us-en/utilities
Follow the instructions for running it, and then reboot the machine (whether it asks for it or not, and whether the program rebooted already or not).


Do the same for any you have had installed for no matter how short a time!

You should also check the system with a decent anti-malware scanner -
Please download and install Malwarebytes Anti-malware (free version) from www.malwarebytes.org - UNtick 'Enable free trial of MBAM PRO' at the end of the installation - and update it, then run a full scan in your main account, and Quick scans in any other user accounts.

Delete everything it finds

Hi, please follow the instructions in Joeten's post #7 this is a known malware issue.

EDIT I should add here that it is good practice to have scripts open in notepad that way you can see what is involved and make an informed decision to run them ( eliminates a lot of potential threats). I recommend all home users do this. Go to Default Programs and associate file type or protocol and next to :-

.vbs
.vbe
.js
.jse
.wsh
.wsf

Have them open in Notepad, if you want after this just select Open to run them.
