Exe program - Files with an extension of "exe" are executable programs.
Purpose of this file:
This is a program that comes installed bundled with other applications, and will normally cause popups. You can remove this without any problems. You will also find a folder named NCASE or 180Solutions. These entire folders can be deleted as well. (As always, make sure you monitor your startup, as this program will also be listed in your startup, and won't do any good to remove it as it will start again when you reboot. If you don't know how to verify these things, download and use the startup manager and BHO manager on Spy Guardian Pro. It is a demo program but the startup monitor and BHO monitor are completely functional. You can find it on Google.).
