It is running in Windows 7 PC, but I don't know where this came from.
I have two anti-virus programs (ESet and Webroot) running on this computer and none of them detected this as a virus.

According to your screenshots above hookup is used in conjunction with the multiple screens. Unless you are having a problem, there is probably no issue.
