Conime.exe shows up in Startup list - located at %windir%\system32\conime.exe - Virus? or no?

I've heard and seen mixed reviews about this same question - some about where its specifically located to differentiate whether its the backdoor trojan or it being the real program
I've scanned my system with MalwareBytes and Norton 360

Heres a few lists pertaining to my system:

Tasklist: tasklist -
Processes List: processlist -
Startup List: startup -
MalwareBytes results: mbam-log-2011-06-21 (23-41-40) -
Jotti-VirusScan: Jotti-Virusscan -
VirusTotal: VirusTotal -

Feel free to email me outside of the forum

nobody has any ideas?

Hello Alex,

Have a look here @ , then you can determine if you wish to remove it.
On occasion, I run both versions of Vista (x86 & x64) and personally have not run across this particular file. If I had and read the info in the link I just provided for you, IMO I would have deleted it.

Hope this helps
