    Judging by the path to the file I would say that this is a false positive. The HPSummer2005 file appears to be a bit of advertising by HP.

    Anyone else think this?

    Yes , can be a false positive however I have seen real threats hiding in this folder/path .

    Frateman , open NOD32's Control Center -> NOD32 System Tools -> Quarantine and add this file there . Then submit it for analyze to ESET and write it can be a false positive . Also write them the path .

    When it is in the quarantine , please boot in Safe Mode and remove it manually (HPSummer2005.exe)
    To boot in Safe Mode , you need to continuously hit F8 while Windows is starting , after the BIOS loads and before the Windows logo appears . Then you'll open Windows Advanced Menu and you choose Safe Mode . Wait for a second and go ahead

    Download Ad-Aware SE Personal (
    Install , update and perform full scan with it and remove all the threats found.Again scan with NOD32 and that's it :D

    Because of the fact the file is in the quarantine you can restore it in future if something goes wrong
