After using Google Chrome for like about 10 minutes today, Symantec AV displayed a pop-up in the notification area with the text "software_reporter_tool.exe is safe".
I was not consciously downloading anything from the internet at the time and decided to take a look at the details of the notification. It turns out that Google Chrome had downloaded an 854Kb executable named "software_reporter_tool.exe":
I was not able to find much of any information on what this tool does.
Does it check what software I have installed and report that to Google?
Or something else?
