    Hello Gurus,

    I'm not familiar with this file and was wondering is it necessary? I did a little research on it and I've read it's a windows file but I've also read it can be possible malware.

    Is this something I need to get rid of? Can it cause harm?

    Do a scan using HitmanPro and AdwCleaner and see if they'll find something suspicious about this exe.

    Hi @CrazY_Milojko

    Thanks for these tips. They didn't detect the Energy.exe as a threat. I've read that it could be associated with Lenovo software. I wonder if it is also associated with Dell, Alienware AWCC or Realtek?

    Fellow Guru would you believe I absolutely forgot about MajorGeeks?!! Lol! This was my first time visiting the site in years. Thanks for that.

    I'm going to look for registry keys and delete the file if possible. I'm reading more negative information about this .exe than positive.

    @TheDigitalJedi

    Give me few minutes to check if I have any Lenovo laptop around to see if has Energy.exe on it.

    edit
    If HitmanPro didn't fount anything suspicious then probably it's safe. Found one Lenovo G50-70 model 20351 around but no Energy.exe on that one. Upload exe to Google Drive, Dropbox or elsewhere and post link here so I can do some checks.

    And what model of laptop or desktop you've found that exe on, some Lenovo branded or...?

    Forget about that site above and similar ones, generic Copy > Paste crap, almost all EXEs are malware as far as they concern, they're trying to get you to download and install all kinds of anti-malware and "anti-malware" crap, and buy it of course, in this case SpyHunter.

    Thanks Bro. I was wondering if this was any good or not. Just another site trying to get folks to buy.

    Look at the edit here on post #4.

    Also... If it's a Dell desktop or laptop and you're not feeling comfortable to share Dell Service Tag code here send me PM and I'll use that code to check on Dell download site if there is anything related to that model in download section. My guess it has to do something with some kind of power management software.
