Tried the software but it didn't find anything that related to the above mentioned file. Anything else i could try?

If you have not tried Malwarebytes download and run that.You get the full version for 2 weeks so it does not cost anything.

According to Nontek's first response it did say it could come under PBEGEO.EXE

But not a lot about that either on Google.

The only one that looks like yours is this one which is genuine.

Maybe you did not get the correct spelling.

Submit it as suspected malware to your AV provider.

Should be a link on their support pages somewhere.

If it is malware, they will include it in an update fairly soon I would hope

(Avira seemed to do that in about 3 or 4 days when I submitted one recently)

Found and deleted it from registry and it seems to have done the trick. Thanks
