What is hotfix.exe?  Is it harmful?  If so, how do I remove it?  I just received a Microsoft pop-up box that said software I ran previously had a problem (5 times) and to report it to Microsoft.  In all instances, the "problem" was hotfix.exe.

If this is a virus, how can I avoid getting infected again?

Thanks-
