secure.exe is a program file which was most likely installed by you. The exact disk location is also shown below to verfiy it is not spyware, as many spyware programs use similiar names and just locate them elsewhere on your hard drive. Always check the proper disk location of your programs if you are suspicious. This file is from a program called "files secure". Files Secure is a rogue program and has been reported by many as a virus and trojan. It runs with a timer loop in the background and continually displays messages that say "Your system is infected!" and is a major nuissance. Action should be taken to eliminate this. I recommend booting is safe mode and deleting the entire "files secure" folder for starters. You must be in safe mode to do this, if you do not feel comfortable deleting files then simply rename all of them in the folder (just name them secure2.exe, etc.). Since this program involves many different files, you should use your antivirus program to eliminate it, action should be taken as soon as possible to get rid of it, but you can start by using the techniques I listed to stop this virus from running.

Note on file and folder locations: Remember that although many files are always in default file locations, some files can easily be moved to different locations or change names like many virus, spyware, or malware do. If you suspect you have a virus or spyware, check to see if you see a similiar names stored elsewhere. It always helps to check your tasklist also to see what is currently running on your computer. You can always view the tasklist on your computer by pressing ctrl-alt-del to view your "task manager", and then click the "processes" tab. This will show you all tasks running on your computer. Dll files will NOT show on your computer tasklist, as dll files are actually part of other processes. You may see similiar program names running if spyware or adware is on your computer, for example, secure.exe may be slightly misspelled to keep you from finding it, or spyware and adware may be named very similiar to a system file. Make sure always check the location of tasks or processes if you are concerned. secure.exe can also be used by other programs or software, as there is no standard on software program names what companies choose.
