File Name Warning

This morning, when my laptop had finished it`s boot up, there was a message box in the middle of the screen, looking like this
Quote

____________________________________________________________________
File Name Warning
____________________________________________________________________
There is a file or folder on your computer called "C:/Program" which could cause certain
applications to not function correctly.  Renaming it  to "C:/Program1" would solve the
problem.  Rename it now ?

[  ] Don`t perform this check at startup
                                                                    [ Rename ]                            [ Ignore ]
______________________________________________________________________

I chose the Ignore option and also did not check mark the Don`t perform box.  The laptop is performing as normal... I have run a Malwarebytes scan.... nothing found... and also a AVAST anti virus scan.... nothing found....
Should I rename it or ignore it, IF it appears next boot up ?

Thanks Nedd...... have downloaded and installed Agent Ransack... it found the folder first time run.... but I was still unsure, as it ony contained 3 unins. files.... So I renamed it Program (file warning)... and re-booted....
no new warning... so will leave things as they are...

Re: File Name Warning

Why is it a problem to call a file Program?
