Thank you in advance for reading this!

I had recently recovered from a Smitfraud infection on my laptop.

So far, I have had no problems, and after deleting McAfee and installing Panda antivirus, the only possible problem I've had is a notice from Panda saying that a potentially unwanted program has been detected, calling it an Application/Processor tracking program and that the file pathway was listed in c:/windows/system32\process.exe

Is this bad?

I've tried blocking it, but the notice keeps popping up, though I haven't found any difficulties running my computer.

I wanted to delete it, but I don't know if it affects any processes on my computer- should i just delete it?

Process.exe is part of several anti-malware tools and like all tools can be good or bad. In this case it is probably a remnant from Smitfraud. Do you wish a further investigation to be carried out ?
