    Instead of asking that question, why don't u just download and install anti-spyware, ad-aware and AV software.Or maybe it's just a processes from your recently new installed application. My suggestion is download and install WinTasks 5 Pro and let's see what it is...:)

    Yes I would say it is not good. Take a look at the directory path to where it is located. That will tell you if it is part of a program or application or not. My gut feeling is it is probably bad and can be gotten rid of. Do as tbrunt says and get spybot and run it with the most up to date definitions.

    I just did a virus scan today and it pulled this one up. Ad-Aware didn't find it but Norton Anti-Virus did.
    There is a folder "ETEA" that should be under your "Program Files". This is where Rpen.exe originates from for me. I deleted that file and did a search on my drive and deleted Rpen.exe after cancelling the process. It is finally gone for me. I think it caused many pop ups for me because I haven't gotten the pop ups I was before I did this.
    For me the directory path of Rpen.exe was not "ETEA", it was in another folder.
