my firewall reported that hccommander.exe in C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Health Check\ActiveCheck\vista requested access to the internet when i launched PC Health Check.
i found out that hccommander.exe has been automatically at the beginning of june.
is it a legitimate file from HP?
what is the use?
another folder with similar name exists with only one file "stuff"
C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Health Check\ActiveCheck\vista2
is it a previous version cleaned up when the other forlder got created?
i couldn't find it on the internet nor on hp websites.
many thanks in advance.

HP Health Check is a utility that is designed to alert you to potential conditions on your hard drive, and can suggest fixes, performance enhancements, and updates on a variety of issues. It also provides you with notifications of current solutions that are targeted to your specific notebook model.
HCCommander.exe is a file that runs in the background and submits the current version information to HP and also checks if there are any updates available.
This is a legitimate HP Software to my knowledge.
For more information of HP Health Check, please visit the following weblink:
Not only Vista & Vista 2 folders, but also Customer, Dashboard, Objects, Objects_pm, product_line, vunlerabilities folders in HP Health Check also contains file by name Stuff. I think this is some logs that it will update into this stuff file that are helpful for HP Health Check scans.
