Default what is SIFXINST.exe ??

what is SIFXINST.exe ?
in my START/Programs/Startup there is something called "Install Pending Files" and called SIFXINST
i did a google search and one page said this..
Quote:
There have been reports that the file, Sifxinst.exe, is a file that the Trojan uses, and that this file, when run, creates the file, Owmngr.exe
ive also seen this..
Quote:
SIFXINST.EXE is a process which belongs to the Lanovation Prism. This program is non-essential process to the running of the program, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems.
if its non-essential and known to possibly a file that the trojan uses, is it something i can delete/remove?
more information would be nice please, thanx
