C:\windows\system32\Tools\Hide.exe

I have a Windows XP Pro SP3 PC. In the midnight it detected adware.Gen in the file of C:\windows\system32\Tools\Hide.exe, then it is cleaned by deletion.

I ran a full scan of the PC and it is clean and nothing found anymore.

I checked my C:\windows\system32\Tools and found that there are some exe files inside, I am curious what are the files for? I can see that the files are from Elitgroup Computer Systems.
