    Out of curiosity I just now viewed my secured programs list in my ZA Free Firewall. They all seemed normal except the very 1st one at the top of the list named "7z Setup SFX". It's located in "C:\Users\Soda\AppData\Local\Temp\HpUpdate\26179\GmdClientSetup.exe". Now before I let my paranoia get the best of me I performed a Google search on this & couldn't really find much. Some results suggested it could be malware although the symptoms following that were CPU usage. I personally haven't ever seen this program running & it's trust levels for all inbound & outbound connections are set at "ask". Is this a legit program HP Update uses?

    It's the right file name in the right location, I would leave it.
