What is BigFix.exe? Nov 30, 2004

Can you identify the application beeing behind?
For the others I cannot tell for sure, but many of them are usually running on any Windows PC.
This one is one I do not know and am not having in my PC.

Regards
Jerzy

BigFix... Nov 30, 2004

it's a utility for preventing computer problems. It came with my PC as well, but I've unistalled it because I found it a bit useless....

Also, if you type each .exe in Google, you will come across a few sites which list them all and which will tell you whether they are a threat or not.
