I was looking for something else and saw this in my Windows folder:
ld32408.exe
The first letter is a lower case "L". It stood out because of its icon - one of those application things with the unpacked yellow box and the little computer screen. All the other applications in Windows have their own Windows-assigned icons.

Its Properties say it was "Created" in May of 2002, "Modified" November 1998. It's a 620KB application. I turn up nothing on Google or at the Microsoft site.
No problems, but just wondering.

From your description of the icon, it sounds like a setup program for something. I have no idea what it is either. I'd send it to the recycle bin, it doesn't look like something you want to leave there.

In Properties, click on the Version Tab.

Is there any identifying info there?

Interesting!
I copied the text on your link and put it throught the Alta Vista Babel Fish Translator, from Italian into English.
It sounds as if she MIGHT be saying she uinstalled Netscape 4.06, then installed 4.08. Then, ("curiously"!) found the id32406.exe in her Windows folder. I DO have Netscape Communicator 4.08! (as backup in case my IE goes crazy.)
I cut out some of the text preceeding her mention of the .exe because it was pretty long.

This was the Babel Fish translation:

I have disinstallato Netscape Navigator 4,06 and have then installed Navigator 4.08. Then, curiosando for the directory, in C:\Windows I have found the rows id32406.exe Sai cos' and '? E' a eseguibile for the disinstallazione of Nescape Navigator 4.06. I have tried to disinstallare also Netscape 4,08 and fortune teller what I have found in directory the C\Windows? Naturally the rows id32408.exe that the good Netscape e' watched removing well. And e' a 620 eseguibile very Kb placed not in directory the localizzabile Netscape therefore, but in C:\Windows.

Seems whatever it is there are strong similarities to what they experienced. Nothing concrete to go on though just interesting.
Removing as Rog suggested of course is the correct direction.
